Planting apple trees now?
I am not new to GW, but have not been to the fruit and orchard section as I have no trees. We are interested in getting apple, peach, pear, and fig eventually, but were going to wait until next year. However, I was just at my local Home Depot and they have a ton of apple trees marked down extremely cheap. They look healthy, but I know this is not the ideal time to plant them.
It is almost worth the risk as the cost is so cheap just to try, so I guess my questions are is there are reason we shouldn't? Is there anything we can do to make them take better to transplanting in late July/ early Aug when it is not ideal for them?
