When to plant apple trees – gardening shortcut you should ‘not attempt’ in autumn

Where to plant apple trees

If planting directly into the garden, the RHS advised against planting a hole too deep for the tree to sit in.

Instead, dig to the same depth as the roots, with a diameter three times that of the root system.

To perfect this measurement, the RHS recommended spreading the roots out on the ground before digging the hole.

It said: “If the sides or base of the planting hole are really hard, break the soil up with a fork before planting.”
