Does this apply no matter where you live? I live in Arizona and have two new apple trees. Should I put a grease band around the trunk?
Hi does this apply to fruit trees in pots as well as in the ground?
I find grease bands very difficult to attach and last year ended up using grease and spreading it on with my hands (with disposable gloves, I might add).
I can't see why apple trees in pots should be any different to those in the ground. It wouldn't hurt to grease band them.
