The Q&A Archives: growing fruit trees

Question: I have recently purchased some monrovia fruit trees and would like some help with their care. They are beautiful healthy trees and I would like them to stay that way.

Answer: You didn't specify which fruit trees so I can only offer general care: Plant your fruit trees in the sunniest location you can find; create a watering basin beneath each so you can water them thoroughly; wait until next spring to fertilize. Fruit trees need to be watered regularly. Once a week (twice if the weather is really hot), fill the basin with water, allow it to drain, then fill it a second time. Watering in this way will concentrate the water over the root mass and allow it to trickle down and wet the entire root mass. Next spring, after the root systems are fully established, you can feed (use a fertilizer formulated for fruit trees and apply in amounts as recommended on the label). Fruit trees with full sunshine and good air circulation all around should be healthy and happy for many years to come. Enjoy!
