If you are going to plant a few apricots, then the pit should be done at a distance of 3-4 meters from each other.These holes need to half fill a loose mixture of wood ash, compost and fertile top layer of soil.

Now each pit disembark our little apricot trees.Gently straighten the roots and fall asleep prepared black earth.Compacted earth and around the former pit to make a side of the ground.Drizzle each tree with plenty of water, counting a bucket of water (20 liters) per hive, if the ground settles in the pits, the dosypte black soil.Throughout the summer, make trees more watering 2-4 times, depending on the weather, if the rains are rare, it can be watered more often.After each watering the soil around the planted apricot sprinkle sawdust.

winter trees need to try something warm, wrap.Planted from apricot fruit can in 3 years, provided that you are caring for a tree, watered it, and protects against adverse weather conditions.It is better to make a landing from 5-8 apricot trees, or one tree crop of the upset can not wait.How to make trimming the tree, see photo below.
