Need help with spacing new dwarf apples trees
Anyone have experience growing apples on G-11 or G-16 rootstock? I have my order placed from Cummins for 15 dwarf apples on G-11 and G-16. I am doing some layout planning and I am unsure about spacing.
It seems that most of the literature on dwarf apples I have read is geared to commercial high density orchards and the recommendations call for 3 to 4 foot spacing. I want to maximize the space but I am thinking around 5 to 6 foot spacing for a homeowner orchard would be better.
Any input would be appreciated, thanks, Chris.
