Planting an apple tree: an advantageous choice

Lately, the number of people who choose to give life to their own personal garden is a number that is clearly growing. More and more people decide to plant the fruits and vegetables they love directly in the garden. The reasons for this trend reversal are many, but the main ones are two. The first is the desire to put on the table quality food, uncontaminated food and of which every product used in its cultivation is perfectly known. Confidence is gradually lost in large supermarkets, and doubts about the origin and quality of the products on sale are always many.

To be on the safe side, there are those who prefer to eat what they grow independently. The second reason relates to an economic issue. As we all know, we are facing a considerable increase in prices, and fruit and vegetables are by no means exempt from these price increases. These are important and difficult expenses to bear, so being able to draw directly from your garden is a significant advantage.

Having said that, let’s now discover together all the steps to take to plant an apple tree in your garden. It will take very little.

Here’s how to plant it in the garden

To be able to plant the apple tree in our garden we must start from its fruitthe apple. The very first thing to do, therefore, is to divide an apple into several parts and take all the black seeds that are inside it. It is from those seeds that our tree will begin to grow. Let’s immerse them all in a bowl full of water and immediately discard those that float: they are not good to plant. Seeds that float tend not to germinate.

In a plant pot we insert good quality soil and place our chosen seed on the surface of the soil. Let’s cover it with another bit of soil and water abundantly. At this point, as you can imagine, you just need to water when the soil will dry and wait. A sprout will begin to spill out within fifteen days. After a month the sprout will be much higher and more vigorous, and it will be necessary to carry out the decanting.

Every time the seedling begins to grow many centimeters it is necessary to change the pot to respect its size. Roots will demand more and more space and nutrients. If you manage to have this constancy, within a short time your seedling will begin to become a tree and give you spectacular fruits.
