Marianne Lipanovich added this to Crazy for Fruit Trees
Espaliering fruit trees is an old-world tradition that is making a comeback. Not only does it keep the trees in bounds (a large apple tree can overpower a small yard), but it shows off the blossoms, leaves and fruit.
Marianne Lipanovich added this to How to Add an Apple Tree to Your Edible Garden
How to Caring for an Apple TreeWatering: Water trees thoroughly and deeply, keeping the ground moist but not overly saturated. Deep, thorough waterings, even if done less often, are best. Mulch will help conserve water as well as discourage weeds. Feeding: Fertilize with a balanced compound when the buds first open. Start with about ¼ pound, then add another ¼ pound for the next few years until the trees mature. If the tree is growing about 6 inches a year, though, there’s no need to fertilize. Also, cut back on nitrogen if the tree is producing lots of leaves but minimal fruit.Thinning: Apple trees do drop some fruit in June, but you’ll probably need to thin branches to about 8 inches or more apart, especially smaller branches. This will result in larger fruit and less inconsistency between the size of the crop from year to year.
