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.

Customer Reviews & Photos
We love our new trees!
We ordered 6 trees in total. We bought 3 avocados, 1 peach, 1 ice cream banana tree, and this apricot tree. Everything was sent by Fed ex and was packed nicely. The plants looked good. The avocado trees had a few green leaves. The banana tree looked great, but however the peach and apricot tree had no leaves. They had little stubby parts growing from the branches. We have had them for about a week and the plants are all doing great. The apricot tree has little buds (flowers now) The peach tree hasn’t done anything yet. But it’s just now starting to warm up. I am hoping that the peach tree does good, but it is to be expected. As I said we have only had them a week and they are doing wonderfully.
Shipped quickly and came in great condition, but the tree was a little smaller than I was expecting. We will see how it performs moving forward.
