Fruit Trees Care
Do you have any fruit trees as part of your garden right now, or are you hoping to get some planted for the future? In either case, there are a few essential things that you’ll need to know about fruit trees in advance if you want your first harvest to be a shining success.
Here’s your must-know information about how to take care of your fruit trees the right way.
Know Your Fruit Trees
You should know what type of fruit tree you’re hoping to plant – and from there, you should know what type of conditions they will grow best in. This is essential, because every type of fruit tree is known to like other types of conditions.
Care of the Soil
Take good care of the soil at all times; this applies to both planting your trees and maintaining the environment over time. Optimal growth depends on optimal soil conditions – and since your plants don’t move out of the soil from here on in, you’ll want to keep them as happy as you can.
What people normally consider pests can go a long way towards evaluating your crop. Do you have worms on your fruit? Well, that’s a good thing: Produce that bugs won’t eat are usually not safe for human consumption either.
Obviously, you’ll still have to control pests. The best way to do it is through natural means – planting other strategic plants that bugs can’t stand is a great help, or you can spray your plants with a natural compound that bugs won’t go near: A simple chilli powder and water mix is usually enough to keep the majority of bugs at bay.
When planting your trees, remember that you’ll want to leave enough room for optimal growth – depending on what type of fruit tree you chose, you should have an average measurement of just how big the tree will be at its maturity.
