New apple trees
My lovely mother purchased me four apple trees! Two Fuji, one Jonathan, and red delicious. I am a simple vegetable gardener and have not had experience with fruit trees. I have researched online but would greatly appreciate any advice or direction!
I live in zone 5 on five acres. The trees are dwarf variety and about eight feet tall right now.
Should I plant them together for x pollination? Any special considerations?
Do I need to stake them for the winter? Thanks in advance!
