Plant Apples Trees in full sun locations in fertile well-drained areas. Make sure soil is well-amended with compost, especially with clay soils. Apples require cross pollination of a different variety for best fruit production. Be sure to partner trees that bloom at the same time. Trees should be planted within about 50′ of each other, but the closer the trees the better. Plant pollinator attracting flowers in the area to attract more pollinators to the trees. Good choices that bloom at similar times are False Indigo, Salvia, Bearded Iris, Candy Tuft, Creeping Phlox, Lenten Rose, Lung Wort and Columbine.
Apple trees benefit from regular pruning. Prune in late winter before plants begin to grow but after most sever cold is over. Flower buds will already be set so be sure to prune around them.
