Which fruit trees should not be planted in the fall

In the fall, owners devote a lot of time to harvesting, preparing the land for the next season, and planting some garden and horticultural crops. But most people make a mistake and plant fruit trees during this period that are not able to survive the winter.

OBOZ.UA found out more about this. Fruit trees should be planted in the spring as there will be favorable conditions for their development.

Stone fruits

Fruit trees such as cherries, wild cherries, plums, peaches, apricots, and almonds should not be planted in the fall. Seedlings need time to take root, and temperature fluctuations and the onset of cold weather will only interfere with this and you will not get a good harvest next season.

There may be an exception only for the southern regions, where warm weather lasts longer than in other parts of the country. The main thing is to plant the tree two weeks before the steady frosts so that the crop has time to "take root".

However, you should be prepared for the fact that the seedling may die in winter.

Such thermophilic trees cannot withstand harsh conditions, so even a slight temperature change can negatively affect the growth and development of the seedling.

Do not forget about the fruit trees you planted earlier as they must be fertilized in the fall. Fertilizers will increase the frost resistance of the seedling, as well as protect it from diseases and pests.

  • Wood ash (you will need two large handfuls of the mixture for each tree);
  • Phosphorus-potassium fertilizers (add 300 grams of superphosphate and 200 grams of potassium sulfate under each tree, pour water over everything);
  • Organic fertilizers (avoid fresh humus as it is too concentrated for plants; apply ready-made compost when digging the soil);
  • Complex mineral fertilizers (read the instructions on the label carefully);
  • Ash (add 3-4 kg of fertilizer per 1 square meter).

Earlier, OBOZ.UA published a list of trees that are usually planted in the fall.
