Answer: You are smart to try to get your tree off to a good start! The tree should come with planting instructions to help you. <br>Instead of trying to give you detailed information here, I'm going to direct you to some web sites: these are articles from National Gardening magazine that detail fruit tree care:<br><br>http://www2.garden.org/nga/EDIT/Articles/pruning.qua<br>http://www2.garden.org/nga/EDIT/Articles/fruitprim.qua<br>http://www2.garden.org/nga/EDIT/Articles/orchard.qua<br><br>There are some wonderful books, too, to help you. One is "Backyard Fruits & Berries" by Diane E. Bilderback & Dorothy Hinshaw Patent (Rodale Press, Emmaus, PA; ISBN# 0-87857-509-X). Another is "Fruits and Berries for the Home Garden, by Lewis Hill (Storey Communications, Pownal, VT, ISBN# 0-88266-764-5) Good luck, and enjoy!
