How do you plant an apple tree? Planting anything like a apple tree takes time, patience, planning, and the drive to succeed. When deciding how o plant an apple tree you must first determine where you want your tree. The area should have full sun as a starter. You should also check the ph levels of the soil. Next you should look up trees. You should only look up trees that are in your budget, that grow in that amount of space, and you like. For people with really small yards there are dwarf versions of most tree types. Once you have picked your apple tree you should double check it before you buy it.
Once you have bought the apple tree you should dig a hole at the desired location. The hole should be dug twice the size of the root ball. The fertilizer should then be added, after that plant and fill in the tree. Be sure to get the plant watered very well afterwards. If you plant a seed however it is not the same and will take 2 to 3 years longer to reach a fruit bearing level. But around 5 years of age you will be able to enjoy the fruits of your labor, literally.
