Newly planted Fruit Trees
My wife and I in a recent fit of self-preservation planning bought and planted last month several apple (Gala and Red Delicious) and plum trees (several varieties) and a dwarf peach that is self-polinating. We have them spaced and planted, and (except the peach) are doing well with leaves coming out and are seeming to thrive. What is the next step I need to take. I've lightly fertilized them with some slow release 6-6-6 fertilizer, and I have them mulched. But I want to make sure I'm doing the best for these guys and girls as I can. What advice would you give me for the next step(s)?
