Falls cool weather will soon be imposed upon us. This is the prime time to plant your new trees, bushes and vines whether they are ornamental or fruit bearing plants.
That cute little 3 foot tall fruit tree will soon be 15 or 20 feet tall and as wide. Trees require a lot of space to be at their best. Semi-dwarf fruit trees are one of the most common size trees planted by home gardeners. They will in time reach a height of about 15 feet tall and as wide.
When planting more than one tree they must be spaced at least 15 feet apart, better yet a 20 foot spacing will give them better access to more sun light and better air circulation. Don’t plant your new tree where it will be shaded by older larger trees or near by buildings.
Don’t plant a tree closer than 20-25 feet from your home. Over hanging tree limbs can damage your homes roof.
Always take care and select only trees, shrubs(bushes) and vine plants that are adapted to your soil and weather conditions. Grin … Don’t plant an Orange tree in Montana and expect it to survive.
Follow planting directions that come with your new tree. Water in well after planting. Don’t forget water your new tree(s) during the winter. It is only the top out of ground part of a tree is dormant in winter. Trees are still actively growing bigger and stronger root systems during the winter months.
