How To Care for your new Fuji Apple Tree
When planting your Fuji Apple tree be sure to choose the right location and conditions for your new tree to thrive. Spring and Fall are ideal times to plant. However, if you avoid freezing temperatures and extreme heat you can plant your Apple tree almost any time of the year.
Apple trees thrive in full sun and well drained soil. Water deeply when planting and twice weekly for 3 months while your tree is establishing. For the first year, we recommend watering deeply once weekly in spring and summer and once monthly in fall in winter after the establishment period. After the first year you will only need to water during dry spells. Adding a layer of 2 to 3 inches of mulch is recommended especially with newly planted trees. Do not allow the mulch to touch the trunk as this increases the chances of pests and disease. Fertilize in early spring and when planting to give your tree a boost. Choose a slow release fertilizer. When planting take care not to burn the roots by mixing the fertilizer into the soil before placing your tree in the hole. Prune your Apple in late winter to remove any dead, dying, or crowded branches.
The best way to prevent disease and pests is by providing the appropriate care for your plants. Proper location choice, watering, and fertilization are the keys to your success. Scale, Aphids, Mites, and Apple Maggots are insects that can affect Apple trees. You can treat the scale, mites, and aphids naturally with horticultural oil, neem oil, or insecticidal soap. For severe infections you can use pesticides like carbaryl, also known as Sevin. Apple Maggot can be treated simply with traps you can purchase at any garden center. Apple trees can encounter fungal issues. Generally, treating after infection isn't extremely effective, so if you have problems yearly treat in early spring with fungicides to prevent infection. Neem Oil is an organic method of treating and preventing some fungal diseases and pests. It can be effective, but the entire tree must be coated in order for this method to be effective.
Unpack all of your plants right away! Look for the perfect location. Make sure you are planting in the correct light conditions.
Dig a hole twice the width of the root ball. Position your plant in the hole. Make sure the top of the root ball is slightly higher than the original grade of the bed. Also check to make sure it is straight from all sides.
Fill up hole with water before placing new plant in hole in order to saturate the surrounding soil. Once the water is absorbed place your plant in the hole and water thoroughly.
Mix the potting soil and the soil removed from the hole. Start by backfilling soil around the root ball. Carefully pack in the soil to remove any air pockets. Water plant thoroughly again until the soil will not hold any more water. This will ensure that your new plant will be a success.
Fertilize around your plant with the amount recommended on the package. Our special Fertilizer contains all of the nutrients to keep your plants growing and healthy. Repeat every 3 months.
Finish up by mulching around your new plant. Apply 1-2 inches of mulch around the plant and plant bed. Mulch will help keep the soil moist and keep weeds out.
Keep watered with a hose every 2-3 days for 2 weeks. This is critical for plant survival. In the third week, begin to water as needed depending on the weather. Always check by placing your finger under the mulch to see if the soil is moist.
