Fruit Trees should be pruned every winter to ensure a good crop of fruit the following season.
Planting too deep is a common cause of tree death. Aim to plant at the same depth that the tree was growing in the nursery.
Keep a mulch-free circle around the base of the tree trunk (about 7.3-10cm or 3-4in) to prevent the bark decaying.
Apply mulch mid-to late spring and autumn. Pruning should be carried out from November to March.
