soil testing/planting site assessment

Hello Apple Corps Potential Tree Sites,

 

The best next step after letting us know you have a site to plant fruit trees is to watch the sun on your site carefully and ask neighbors who have been around for a while to determine if you have a site that receives 8 hours of sun a day.  Six to eight is with-in reason.

Next, to have a success we encourage you to go to:  http://www.uvm.edu/pss/ag_testing/GardenTestQuestionnaire.pdf

This is a UVM soil testing site.  It explains how to take the soil test.  It costs $14.00 but it is well worth the investment to make sure you have a good site.  Your site overall should be somewhat sandy, not rocky.

Further steps for success include care and maintenance of the fruit trees.  See the resource information here and plan to attend our educational workshops.
