Here's a quick spring garden project I just finished filming.
Planting a fruit tree the right way.
Great stuff, many thanks for sharing. I've moved your post so it can be more easily found by community members. I'm sure some will also have questions for you.
That was really helpful, thanks @Adam_W! I've got a few fruit trees to plant in the garden of our new house with the kids, which I haven't done before, so this advice is excellent. I appreciate your presentation style - very easy to understand!
Looks like I have been doing the wrong thing compressing the soil too much.
Yes, that's a logigical & easy mistake to make @AHoy
People often compress the soil with the aim of stabilising the young tree but ironically in the long term it has the opposite effect - the compressed soil is harder for new roots to establish in & it's the roots that provide real stability.
