Once it's time to plant an apple tree in your garden,so that it gives you excellent results for at least 20-30 years. The main problem is that beginning gardeners often do not know the mass of elementary things. By the way, and when to plant apples? In autumn - the most suitable time.
The soil should be light enough and well permeable for air and water, and the depth of groundwater can not be more than two meters.

It is necessary to know that the fossa for the seedling is prepared strictly in a month. The soil is digging a depression one meter in diameter and 0.7 m deep. The top layer of fertile soil is removed and stacked separately.
Then a peg with a diameter of 5 cm is driven into the center of the pit. The upper part of it should protrude beyond the hole by 0.4 m. To prevent the stick from rotting, its lower part should be burned on fire.
Since you can plant an apple tree in autumn only withtaking into account that the seedling will be perfectly healthy, as you should examine it. Cut off some roots at the ends: if the cut is white, then they are alive and not overdried. Sick and dry places need to be cut, covering the resulting wounds with a garden fog.
After that, in a pre-prepared placeThe hole is digging, and its diameter must exactly match the diameter of the hole for the root system of the tree. Lay the required fertilizers (depending on your locality), and pour on the humus so that the roots of the tree are not burned.
In no case can it be buried in the ground, since in that case your tree is unlikely to bring at least one crop. The above is also not worth it, since in the hot summer the apple tree will simply dry up.
When planting, you must carefully spread it in the pitroots, fill them with earth and lightly rammer. In the process of falling asleep the root system, the seedling should occasionally be shaken so that the voids between the roots are evenly filled with soil.
After this, the tree is tied to the planting peg. Water the seedling with two or three buckets of water, after which the soil surface is mulched with humus.
