Plant fruit trees and bushes

Gardeners' World - - Fruit & Veg -

If you buy fruit trees and bushes in pots now, they can be planted out straight away so they can push their roots out into the warm soil be­fore the win­ter sets in. Pre­pare a large plant­ing hole with plenty of or­ganic mat­ter forked into the base. Make sure the top of the root­ball will be level with the sur­face of the soil once the hole is back­filled. Soak the bot­tom of the hole, then tease out some of the roots be­fore plant­ing. Firm the soil well around the roots and use an an­gled stake to avoid dam­ag­ing the roots.
