Prior to planting the bare root tree, soak its roots in water for 2-3 hours. Position the plant so it is slightly deeper than the original soil line on the stem.
Water regularly during the first growing season, but do not allow the soil to become soggy. Apply a well-balanced fertilizer during the late winter or early spring prior to the onset of new growth. Follow manufacturer's application rates. Trees planted in windy sites may require staking. Prune the trees during the winter months while the trees are dormant. Since there are several different apple types on your tree, you may see some varieties growing more quickly than others. To maintain a balanced tree form, prune the faster-growing varieties more aggressively. Selective pruning during the growing season will also help control the more vigorous branches.
Pests & Diseases
Fungal diseases such as scab can be controlled with early-season applications of sulfur-based fungicides, neem or Bordeaux mixtures. Follow manufacturer's instructions for specific products. Monitor insect pests such as apple maggots or codling moths with traps. If adult insects are present in sufficient numbers, spray with pyrethrin, neem or other insecticide once the blossoms have dropped 75% of their petals. As these insecticides will also affect pollinating insects, timing the application will limit impacting those beneficial insects. Apple Maggot Barriers (ZIN496P) are nylon covers that you place on young apples. These physical barriers prevent moths from laying eggs on the fruit and are an effective, chemical-free preventative from insect damage. Introducing beneficial nematodes to the soil around your trees will help control insect populations such as apple maggots, since they have a portion of their lifecycle in the soil. Practice good orchard sanitation to limit disease and pest activity. Clean up fallen leaves and fruit; destroy any material that is diseased.
Standard, well drained loam with plenty of organic matter. Apple trees will tolerate a wide range of soils, but avoid heavy, poorly drained soils.
