●● PLANTING fruit trees CHECK out specialist fruit nursery catalogues now to order your bare-root trees to plant during the dormant season.
Pick a mild, dry day to prepare the ground for your trees, digging over the area and incorporating plenty of organic matter before digging a good-sized individual hole to accommodate the roots without cramming them in.
Loosen the subsoil by breaking up the bottom of the hole, putting plenty of compost in the bottom and working it in.
Make sure you have low stakes and tree ties to insert which will support the tree when planted.
