Planting & Care



It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Royalty Crabapple Tree


Royalty Crabapple Tree Planting Diretions

Planting Instructions: The Royalty Crabapple will perform best if you plant it in well-drained soil that is mildly acidic. Incorporating 2-3 inches of compost in the soil will help water and oxygen to penetrate more evenly and greatly improve the performance of your Royalty. Place in a spot in your yard that receives full, unfiltered sun.

 

Watering: As soon as you plant your tree, saturate it with water. If you live in a hot or dry area, water your Royalty twice a week. Other climates can water once a week, achieving 1 inch of water each week. The Royalty performs best if water is added slowly and deeply with a drip irrigation system.

 

Fertilization: Add a 5-5-5 fertilizer in early spring each year to get the best performance from your tree.

 

Pruning: The best time to prune your Royalty is at the end of spring before the summer buds arrive. You can prune off any dead or diseased branches, cross branches or crowded areas that prevent good airflow.

 

Pests: Check your tree frequently for any mites or aphids. A strong stream of water will get rid of these pests. Keeping your tree well maintained will help prevent against borers. A heavy sap flow can drown them, so be sure to properly care for your tree.

Disease: If you see any signs of disease on your crabapple, including leaves that fall too early or have spots, blisters or browned edges, you should treat your tree promptly. Avoiding doing so can greatly shorten the life of your tree. Sterile pruning and a fungicide treatment are the best measures to stop disease before it takes over the tree.
