Feeding Deciduous Fruits
When do I start to feed apple pear and peach trees kept in large pots, and how often do I repeat it i.e at what interval do I feed, thanks.
Botanical Journeys Plant Guides
When and how much you feed a deciduous fruit tree depends on the age and size of the tree.
As a general rule, they are never fed during dormancy. Fertilizer is applied in spring, summer and fall.
Fruit trees growing in pots will almost always need to be fed at least 3 times per growing season whereas trees in the ground may do well with fewer feedings.Fertilizing Apple Trees
gives much more detailed instructions than I can give here.
