Young apple trees - spray, prune - what to do?
Hello all. I'm the typical neophyte who thought "wouldn't it be nice to grow some apples in my backyard", and I humbly come to you seasoned veterans for a little advice. I have two young apple trees - one is a honeycrisp and one is a golden delicious. They're both 6-1/2 to 7 feet tall, were planted last September, and are in full bloom now. I live in SE Michigan, and I'd like to know what I should do in terms of spraying / bagging, in order to get the best apples come fall. I've read several posts, and most pertain to old trees - just curious what your advice is for these newer guys. They're both about 6-1/2 to 7 feet tall. Thank you!
