Managing Your Orchard
The first few years of tending an orchard are the most critical. Be sure to follow the complete planting instructions, including white washing the trunks to protect from sunburn, installing irrigation and a deer fence; and fertilizing your orchard. Pruning to train the young trees is essential to establish a strong scaffold of branches to support large crops. Use the pruning references and/or come to our free pruning workshops. Once established an orchard will provide years of fresh fruit.
