Apple Trees

Planting apple trees can be the start of a long relationship with nature since an apple tree can be an annual source of apples for as many as 50 years.

Apple trees require two different varieties in order to pollinate, so never buy just one variety if you want apples. The trees must bloom at the same time, and there are some guidelines on which varieties cross-pollinate well. Consult with the store where you but the trees to make sure you choose compatible varieties.

Apple trees require plenty of sun, so do not plant them where they would be shaded

by other trees or buildings. They also are sensitive to cold during the spring, so avoid planting apple trees in a sunken area, at the bottom of a hill, in a wooded area, near a closed fence, or anywhere else that the flow of air would be blocked.
