●● 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.
