I want to plant some 1-year, maiden apple trees (or whips, rather) to train as step over trees. Is it too late for me to do this, or must I wait until winter? I'd much rather do get them started now but am worried it's too late.
Any advice would be most gratefully received!
I think its too late for bare root trees , but you can plant containerised fruit trees at any time, provided you remember to water frequently during the first year.
That's brilliant! I did think of just buying the step over trees, but they're so pricey (from Blackmoors there's a £40 pallet delivery fee!) and wouldn't be nearly as satisfying. Of course, it'll be delayed gratification!
