Thanks for great fruit trees and Christmas delivery!

These trees were bare root planted on the sought after sandy loam banks of the Alabama River in Lower Sardis Alabama in the month of December 2011.

Fruit Tree Packages for Deer Food Plots

Fruit tree packages are essential to all for quality, longevity & production. Planting more  than one or two varieties in any given area will generally provide you with some fruit. Providing that you are mixing the varieties so that bloom time overlaps for cross pollination. You’ll have fruit that will typically drop around August –September, […]

Fertilization

In the past we have recommended adding a slow release fertilizer to the holes at time of planting. I am somewhat backing off of this statement because of recent test that I have conducted on my own property at planting. We always mixed a 3 month slow release fertilizer in the pots at the nursery […]

Recipes

Neglect here will result in poor growth and delayed fruiting. 1st  year  -­Pruning a young tree controls its shape by developing a strong, well balanced framework of scaffold branches. Remove or cut back unwanted  branches […]

Some varieties bear heavy  crops when pollinated by another pollen producing variety. It is very  important to mix varieties and plant in multiples to insure […]

Site and Soil Requirements

Sunlight  is  the  key  ingredient  in maximizing  fruit  production. Early   morning  sun  is  really  important  to  dry   the  dew  from  the  plants,  thereby reducing   the  incidence  of  disease.  So  choose  a  site   on  your  property that  is  in  the  sun  most   of  the  day.  Otherwise,  expect  reduced   performance  from […]

Purchasing Trees

The  Old  saying  “you  get  what  you  pay   for”  is  an  important  consideration  when   purchasing  fruit  trees.  Bargain  plants   may  not  be  healthy  or  may  be  a  variety   not  adapted  to  your  area.  Buy  only  trees   of  recommended  varieties  from  a  reliable   source. Remember  these  few  points  when   […]
