Re: Planting Garden Delicious Apple Dwarf

Awesome, thank you for the reply. I was thinking about a sudden hard frost hitting during this time as well, (if we actually have a winter this year) and was wandering if layering the bottom of the tree with about a foot of leaves would act as a blanket for the roots. I really have no clue though, i...
