Q.Apple Tree Planting
The ground that provides full sunlight twenty-five feet from a five-year-old yellow delicious is hard clay. Without taking the dirt miles away to the county extension office, I thought you perhaps could share light on the subject of digging out the area of planting my new GALA, about eighteen inches in good, rich soil before it ever reaches the hard clay. I know your instructions concerning planting and will follow as stated, but will the thing live after the roots reach the unproven soil?
