Fruit trees start life with a very small root system, so it makes sense to plant them in a welcoming environment, with good soil structure, good drainage, and readily available nutrient while their roots get established.
Choosing the right trees, the right site, and preparing your soil in advance will give your trees a massive head start and make them more resilient in later years.
This module will give you the key information and skills to give your trees the best possible start in life, plus a step-by-step “how to” guide to best practice fruit tree planting.
