Apples grow best in fertile soil. Make sure the apple tree root ball is well-moistened before planting by soaking it in a bucket of lukewarm water.
Prepare a suitable hole and improve poor garden soil by mixing in some compost and well-rotted manure. Plant the apple tree at the right depth in the hole - the top of the root ball should be approximately 10 cm below ground level. Plant the tree next to a tree stake and wrap a tree belt around the stake and trunk. Fill the hole with soil, heel well in and water thoroughly immediately after planting. This apple tree will thrive in an area with complete sunshine.
The Malus domestica is a strong and healthy variety. We advise a mulch of compost and granulated cow manure around the trunk of the tree in winter. Water extra during dry spells. Thin out the fruits in August by removing the smallest apples so that all the energy goes to the largest fruit. The apples can be harvested from October.
Apples are good for you and contain lots of vitamin C.
