STAKE AND WATER NEWFRUIT TREES
It’s easy to neglect new fruit trees if you’ve planted them a fair distance from your house. Out of sight, out of mind. But fruit trees, especially those planted in winter as bareroot trees, need regular irrigation to get them through their first summer. Water at least twice a week, aiming for 10 litres per tree each time. And if you haven’t staked your trees, do that now too.
