Planting apple trees
I live in pure sand and I have some apple trees/crab apple trees to plant. However I have to dig huge holes and amend the soil. So I normally amend to about 4 feet down or so. Now here is my question-Because I live in soil that drains so quickly, should I plant my trees really deep? I was thinking that I should take the entire tree and just plant it like 2 feet underground. [The tree is quite tall] So it would still have a trunk showing and the branches wouldnt be like touching the ground or anything, but hopefully it would be able to survive our dry site. Does this sound like a good idea? Do any of you have any suggestions? I will also add bone meal to the hole so it gets good roots, but what else should I do for my trees? Any advice is appreciated.
