Fruit Bearing Trees and Shrubs

Care

Fruit trees are not as difficult to grow in a backyard as you might think. Start with a very young tree obtained from your local nursery. Plant in a wide-open, sunny spot in your desired location, but away from a driveway or building. Make sure the soil drains properly -- very important. Stake your tree. Cover the soil with organic mulch but make sure the mulch does not come within 5 inches of the trunk. Please note that it will take anywhere from 1 to 7 years after you’ve planted a fruit bearing tree or shrub before it starts to bear fruit.
