When planting your Profusion be sure to choose the right location and conditions for your new tree to thrive. Spring and Fall are ideal times to plant. However, if you avoid freezing temperatures and extreme heat you can plant your Apple tree almost any time of the year. Crabapple trees thrive in full sun and well drained soil. Water deeply when planting and twice weekly for 1 to 3 months while your tree is establishing. For the first year, it's best to water deeply once weekly in spring and summer and once monthly in fall in winter after the establishment period. After the first year you will only need to water during dry spells. Adding a layer of 2 to 3 inches of mulch is recommended especially with newly planted trees. Do not allow the mulch to touch the trunk as this increases the chances of pests and disease. Fertilize in early spring and when planting to give your tree a boost. Choose a slow release fertilizer. When planting take care not to burn the roots by mixing the fertilizer into the soil before placing your tree in the hole. Prune your Crabapple in late winter to remove any dead, dying, or crowded branches, or to maintain shape. The best way to prevent disease and pests is by providing the appropriate care for your plants. Proper location choice, watering, and fertilization are the keys to your success. Scale, Aphids, and Mites are insects that can affect Crabapple trees. You can treat these pests naturally with horticultural oil, neem oil, or insecticidal soap. For severe infections you can use pesticides like carbaryl, also known as Sevin. Japanese Beetles are sometimes an issue for Apple trees. These can be treated with an organic powder called Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt). Luckily, the Profusion Crabapple is disease resistant and only rarely encounters problems with disease.
