Keeping Trees Alive
The bare-root fruit trees we planted have lived. Not everything we ordered and planted has lived, but the trees have. They all have leaves, and some even flowered.
We're pinching off flowers and fruit when we see them, though, because it's best not to let them grow fruit when they're just getting established.
It's been so dry here that we have to water all the time. We just keep moving the hose from tree to tree every day that we're home. It has been a challenging spring for starting bare-root trees!
