Want to plant some fruit trees on your property? Here’s some great info all about apple trees and apricot trees.
Apples have been a part of our diet for thousands of years. They come in so many sizes, shapes, colours, textures, flavours and have limitless uses. Pick them fresh from the tree and enjoy a gnash or you can savor them baked, stewed, dried, juiced, in jams, jellies or sauces. Apple trees are not just for people with acres upon acres of land. Even in a small space you can plant a hedge of dwarf apple trees or an apple espalier (trained to go flat against a support – like a wall) and yield a successful crop. In spring, enjoy the showy blossoms & it is also a great time to plant Apple trees.
Easy to grow and care for, Apricot trees like rather hot and wind-sheltered areas. The colours are beautiful in both spring with magnificent pinkish-white flowers and summer showcases the orange-yellow apricots. As with most fruit trees, Apricots are sun lovers who enjoy rich well-drained soil.
