Planting young plants

From Early Spring TO Early Spring

The best time to plant this tree is in early spring as there should no longer be any frost. Around this time the soil should be warming up. Dig in plenty of compost and water well in. Plant in a sheltered position where the tree will get plenty of sunshine.
