To plant a apple tree it must first be determined which way you are going to get a tree.

You can take a seed and plant it or get a small tree from your local plant nursery or home improvement house. If you chose to plant a seed to grow a tree, it would take longer, but you will better appreciate your tree in the long run for its beautiful fruit with proper care. If you get a small tree from your local store, many long years will be cut out of growing your appletree. That will take the time to get lovely homegrown apples shorter.

First you must select the spot for your tree (seed or plant).

The area must have full sun—good rich well-drained soil, and (for best performance). It would be best if you prepared the seeds area with plenty of water and fertilizer. The seed should be best planted in the spring right after the last frost and watered every day until it reaches a good size. Planted trees should have a hole dug for them twice the size of their ball of roots. They also should be well fertilized and watered every day until they adjust to the new home. With both, You should trim them to promote the tree growing in the shape desired. It would be best if you did that in the winter or dormant months. That will promote growth and apple blossoms in the spring.
