Do I Need To Stake My Bare Root Tree?
9 out of 10 times the answer will be no, especially if under 200cm tall. However our article on Tree Staking should help guide you.
Planting In The Corner Of A Garden
Air and light is reduced in this location which could promote fungus and bacterial issues. If the corner is of the house and a fence then you also have leeching issues to contend with from cement and wood preservatives. Also when it rains, that area would experience higher water levels so we advise against it unless the plant is very hardy.
1 Year Maiden Bare Root Trees
If you plant a 1 Year maiden tree and do not prune it at all, it will grow a little more upright and have more clear stem.
Bare Root Pineapple Nectarine Tree
The Pineapple Nectarine tree is another popular choice because of the large and flavourful fruits it provides. Some have described the flavour as a hint of pineapple. Should you wish your nectarines to be bigger than they actually are, may we suggest standing closer to the fruit until the desired size is achieved. *Ultimate size dependant upon length of arms and size of nose.
Our Pineapple Nectarine is self-fertile meaning that it will produce Nectarine fruits without the need of another different species Nectarine tree nearby.
Month of Picking: Early September
Type of Nectarine: Eating
Fruit Tree Heights
Taller does not mean more value for money. A 1 year old fruit tree can easily be substantially higher than a 2 year old, this is because they are hard pruned at 1 year old to create the desired shape. Some trees have over 100cm of height removed. They can then have another pruning at 2 years old to increase fruit growing real estate. Most fruit trees will benefit from having a third to half of the seasons new growth cut back in the Autumn to prevent long whippy branches which break easily. Age and pruning completed determine real value.
