Planting Trees

In this movie owe have a look at planting trees in an orchard. New trees should be in perfect condition when they are put into the ground. Trees that are suffering from a lack of water, or bruising, or other damage can often give problems later, so check each tree carefully before it goes into the ground.

We discuss factors that relate to tree planting, such as ideally stone fruit should be planted by end of July and pome fruit should be planted by the first week in September, but, both can be planted later, depending on the conditions.

Nutritional and watering subjects are also covered in detail as is the preparation of the soil for the planting of each tree.

This is a fascinating video that explains the subject very clearly.
