Trees you will love to the core

Growing apple trees in Melbourne

Many people think of apples as a winter fruit, but in reality, they can be grown year-round in Melbourne. There are more than 7,000 different types of apples, and with careful planning, it's possible to find a variety that will thrive in our climate. The key is to choose a variety that is suited to our growing season. For example, the Royal Gala apple is harvested from March to April, while the Granny Smith apple is harvested from May to June. Planting your tree in well-drained soil and full sun will also help to ensure a healthy harvest of delicious apples year after year.

The best apple trees for your backyard

If you're looking for the best sweet flavour apple trees for your Melbourne backyard, you'll want to choose a variety that is well suited to the local climate. Some of the most popular varieties include Golden Delicious, Granny Smith, Pink Lady Apple and Red Delicious. However, it's important to remember that not all apple trees will do well in every location. For example, Granny Smith apples prefer cool climates, while Red Delicious apples thrive in warmer weather. Before choosing a particular variety, be sure to research which types of apples and citrus trees are best suited to the climate in your area. With some planning, you can start growing apples in no time.

Pruning apple trees

Apple trees need to be pruned every year to produce the best fruit. Pruning helps to encourage new growth and remove diseased or damaged branches. It also helps to open up the inside of the tree, which allows sunlight and air to reach the fruit. To prune an apple tree, start by removing any dead wood. Then, cut back any branches crossing or rubbing against each other. Next, thin out the branch tips to promote new growth. Finally, cut back any branches that are growing vertically instead of horizontally. You can keep your apple tree healthy and productive for many years with patience and care.

Frequently asked questions

When to plant apple trees in Melbourne?

Most apple trees can be planted in Melbourne from late winter to early spring because the soil is warmer and the days are longer, providing the ideal conditions for tree roots to establish themselves.

Choosing a sunny spot for your apple tree is important, as this will help the fruit ripen. You should also ensure enough space for the tree to grow, as it can reach a height of up to 6 metres. And finally, don't forget to give your tree plenty of water, especially during the first few months after planting. By following these simple tips, you'll be on your way to enjoying a bountiful crop of delicious apples.

How often should I water my apple tree in Melbourne?

As a general rule, you should water your apple tree once a week during the growing season. If you live in an area with high heat and low humidity, you may need to water more frequently. To check if your tree needs watering, poke your finger into the soil about 2 inches deep. If the soil is dry, give the tree a good soaking. Be sure to water early in the day, so the leaves have time to dry before nightfall. Additionally, ensure to water the roots and not just the leaves to help the tree produce fruit.

When do apple trees blossom in Melbourne?

The timing of apple tree blossoming in Melbourne depends on the particular variety of apple trees. Some varieties blossom as early as late August, while others don't blossom until mid-September. However, most apple trees in Melbourne will blossom sometime between late August and mid-September. The exact timing also depends on the weather conditions in any given year. 

For example, if the weather is particularly warm and sunny in early September, the apple trees may blossom a few days earlier than usual. Conversely, the apple trees may blossom a bit later than normal if the weather is cool and wet during that time period. Either way, you can usually expect to see apple blossoms sometime between late August and mid-September in Melbourne.

When to spray apple trees in Melbourne?

If you live in Melbourne, you know that the weather can be unpredictable. One minute it's hot and sunny, and the next, a cold front moves in, making it difficult to know when to spray apple trees. In general, you should wait until the trees have bloomed before spraying, as this will help to ensure that the blossoms are protected from any potential pests. 

Once the blossoms have been pollinated, the fruits will start to develop. At this point, you can respray the trees to prevent diseases like apple scab from damaging the apples. Following these simple guidelines ensures that your fruit tree stays healthy and productive all season long.
