    • Planting fruit trees is one of the best things you can do on your homestead.

     

    They take minimal care once they get established and will produce year after year. Even if you have a very small space you can still plant dwarf trees or grow espaliered trees in pots. If you have more space, fruit trees can become integral parts of a productive food forest. No matter who you are, you need to plant fruit trees!

     

    After your fruit tree and any other plants have been planted, make sure to add mulch around it.  Don’t pile the mulch up close to the trunk.  Instead, spread the mulch all the way to the drip line of the tree.  This will kill grass and break down and provide nutrients to your new fruit tree.

  • Pollination

    Like all fruit trees, apples need to be pollinated if they are to set fruit. This involves the transfer of pollen from the stamen (the male part of the flower) to the stigma (the female part). Pollinating insects such as bees work hard at this job, which is one reason why it’s so important to plant pollinator-attracting flowers in among our crops – to keep them on side and coming back! Wind will also help to pollinate apple blossom.
