Grow your own backyard orchard with gorgeous and delicious apple trees!

  • Before planting, remove all weeds and grass in a 4-foot diameter circle.
  • Apple trees require cross-pollination, so you will need to two different varieties of trees within a couple of hundred feet of each other. If you do not plant with a different variety, the tree will not bear fruit.
  • Dig a hole twice the diameter of the root system and 2 feet deep. Spread the roots into soil, making sure they are not crowded or twisted.
  • Cover the roots and firm the soil to remove air pockets.
  • Water regularly to establish a healthy root system.
