Are Pink Lady Apple Trees self-pollinating?
Pink Lady Apple Trees are not self-fertile. You will need to plant another variety to achieve fruiting.
How quickly can I expect fruit?
You can expect tasty apples within one year of planting your tree.
Find a location with well-drained soil and full sun (about 6 hours of sunlight per day). Once you've selected a location, dig a hole that's twice the width of the root ball and just as deep. Then, place your tree in the hole, back fill and tamp down the soil, and waterl. Apple trees are widely adaptable and tolerate slightly acidic conditions. Add a generous layer of mulch to help retain soil moisture as well as to insulate the root system.
Your apple tree will benefit from a regular watering each week, though you may have to water more during times of extreme heat or drought. If you're not sure when to water, simply check the soil by sticking your finger down to a depth of about 2 or 3 inches - if it's dry give it an extra watering.
Once your tree has become established and is starting to bear fruit, it will need light periodic pruning. Only prune the tree during times of dormancy, making sure to remove any upright stems and weak, damaged, or dead branches.
