Growing an apple tree requires a little care but provides bushels of rewards.
Apple trees are a favorite addition to the home landscape or backyard orchard because of their beautiful spring blooms, late summer to early fall fruit and ease of care. Taking care of an apple tree is simpler than you think. I know because I have 3 of them. Just give them the proper location, enough water and sunshine, yearly fertilization, a little pruning and check on them periodically to make sure they don’t become sick or insect-infested. Follow these simple guidelines and you’ll be eating an apple a day in no time.
