Question: Last year I planted small orchird (12 trees). Some gave a few fruits,some none. What do I have to do this fall to properly care for my orchird? Sell I expect more fruits next year?
Thank you, Ludmila

Answer: It may take your fruit trees another 2-3 years to mature before they will produce a heavy crop. There's not much you need to do this fall in terms of care other than to water your trees deeply once each week until fall rains take over. In the spring you can count the number of blossoms to give you an idea of how many fruits your trees will produce. Each year there should be more and more fruits as your trees get larger and larger. Good luck with your orchard!
