Question by lbreyburg

Last year we planted 10 assorted fruit trees, purchased them at the local nersery and Costco. This is their first year at our garden. They all had a little of blouming. We see some start developing fruits. What is our proper care for them now? Thank you,

In general, fruit trees need lots of sunshine and ample water throughout the growing season. They probably won't set much fruit because they are young, but you can encourage them to grow strong and healthy with just a little fertilizer this spring and a deep soaking once each week. Aside from that, they should be just fine. Enjoy!
