Fertilizing Apple Trees in Pots

by Rob
(Blackwood Gwent)

When do I feed my apple trees I have growing in pots?

Plant Guides Answer:

In general, you apply apple tree fertilizer at bud break and again in May.

But it depends on how much the trees have grown over the past season.

You feed them more if they are growing too slowly. Less if the shoots have grown more than 12 inches the previous season.

Fertilizing Apple Trees will provide greater detail.
