Planting & Care
1. Planting: Full to partial sun (4 to 6 hours of sun) and well-drained soil ensure your 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

Ordering was easy and transparent. Our tree arrived on time and in perfect condition. The planting instructions were clear, and after a full week, the tree seems to be doing well. It seems to be progressing at the same rate as the nearby decades old American red bud and same-age weeping cherry. A final note: kudos on the shipping box. Although its size was daunting, it obviously kept the tree in perfect condition, was easy to open, and very easy to break down for local recycling.
Came very well packaged and easy to plant. Apricot trees usually do well in our climate although they are early bloomers and about half the time we expect to have a late frost that kills the crop for that year. It was beginning to leaf out in the box but looked healthy so I am hopeful that this tree will be fine.
The tree arrived very quickly. I was very impressed with the way the tree was packaged. Very healthy looking. I can't wait until I bite into the first Apricot.
