Buying fruit-bearing trees - how to make the right choice

Of course, your taste preferences are our first concern. Often it is childhood memories, holiday experiences or simply a weakness for one or the other type of fruit. For apple lovers the motto may be "An apple a day keeps the doctor away"; peach lovers look forward to early autumn when "peaches with stripes ripen on the railing" (lyrics to a German folk song). But also for lovers of crunchy nuts and exotic fruits the Lubera® garden shop offers a fantastic selection.

Apart from personal taste, the available space is a decisive factor. Mighty walnut trees, large apple and cherry trees need a few square metres. Fortunately you will also find many columnar and mini fruit trees for small gardens as well as for balconies or terraces. When it comes to exotic fruit, you should make sure that the selected variety is hardy in your location and region. You can find a lot of information about winter hardiness here on the Lubera® website. Finally, it should matter whether you prefer the decorative element or lush yields. Fruit trees are of course all beautiful, but very pretty flowering fruit trees such as cherry and peach trees are particularly attractive.

Planting fruit trees correctly

Fruit trees should have a fully sunny or at least half-shaded location. The more sun the crown and foliage of the fruit-bearing trees reach, the better the plant can produce sugar during photosynthesis – and the fruits become sweeter! The planting period can be in autumn or spring. In autumn, the time around October or November is ideal. This is when the fruit trees slowly begin to dormant, but at the same time the soil is still warm so that the plant can take root before winter. A second planting period is in early spring.

For planting, a planting hole is first dug out, which is approximately twice as large as the root ball. This is roughened before planting, so that the fine roots can root faster into the soil. The soil should be permeable but still rich in nutrients. A normal proportion of clay ensures that the soil can store water. The planting hole is filled up with the soil, which is then pressed down firmly. Then, in the case of fruit trees, a pole should be used to ensure that the freshly planted tree remains stable in the vertical position by tying the tree to the pole with ropes. After tying the tree to the pole, the fruit tree should be watered several times.

Pruning fruit trees

Young fruit-bearing trees need to be pruned regularly to ensure that a healthy crown is formed. Fruit tree pruning is by no means a sealed book. Here you will find a lot of information, texts and videos about fruit tree pruning. This typically takes place in late winter or early spring. The type and extent of pruning is quite different for different types of fruit. It is important with every form of fruit tree pruning to think about how to prune the tree. The cutting tool should also be sharp and clean.
