Blenheim Apricot Tree Pollination
Blenheim Apricot Trees are self-fertile. You will get fruit with only one plant. However, adding an additional Blenheim Apricot Tree will drastically increase the size of your crop.
Planting & Care
1. Planting: Full sun (6 to 8 hours of sun) and well-drained soil ensure your Blenheim Tree will thrive.
To plant, dig your hole shallower than the root ball and at least twice the width. After the hole is finished, loosen the soil in the planting hole so the roots can break through easily. Then, place your tree, backfill the soil and water to settle the roots.
2. Watering: Water about once weekly. However, if you get around an inch of rainfall every 10 days or so during the growing season, additional watering should be unnecessary.
If you’re not sure how much water the tree needs, check the soil about 2 or 3 inches down - if it's dry, it's time to water.
3. Fertilizer: If you’re planting during the fall season, wait until the spring to use fertilizer. With nutrient-rich soil, fertilizer is unnecessary until your tree begins bearing fruit. After fruiting starts, an application of high-nitrogen fertilizer is recommended.
4. Pruning: Prune each year during the dormant season. If you’re located in growing zones 6 or farther north, wait to prune your tree until the late winter. When you do prune, make sure you’re pruning in an 'open center' shape, which keeps the tree’s canopy open for light purposes.
Estimated Shipping Time: Most orders ship immediately. As noted on the website, some items are seasonal, and may only ship in spring or fall. Once your order is shipped, you'll receive an email with a tracking number.

Customer Reviews & Photos
The tree arrived in great condition. Have it planted and watering it, just waiting for Spring to arrive.
Tree arrived in great condition. Looks larger than I expected. Looks very healthy as do all the trees I’ve ordered from FGTs! Can’t wait for Spring to arrive.
Hard to tell at this poont
I called the service representative because when I came the leaves at all falling off the tree and I didn’t know what to expect. She was very helpful and giving me specific information about the care over the winter and that it would be guaranteed come spring to survive the winter so I guess I’ll have to see. I do have high hopes, and I hope that comes spring will be able to plant the tree in the ground and enjoy fruit soon.
Can't wait until next summer
I had been looking for this apricot variety and was very excited to find it at Fast Growing Tree, It arrived well packaged and not one broken branch. It seems to be happy in my yard so far. Will need to be patient for the fruit to come next summer.
Came well protected and healthy.
