Bramley Apple Tree – Too Much Water

tillylid added on June 18, 2012 | Answered

We have recently moved to a house and have just planted a Bramley apple tree. With all the recent rain, that part of garden ends up in about 9 inches of water. Is this too much water and should I move the tree?

If this area is prone to standing water, then I would either move the tree or divert the water somehow--perhaps redirecting drainage with a berm or building up the lawn. It is not good for the tree to remain in water this way for extended periods. If you move the tree and still want to use the space for gardening, you can always turn it into a rain or bog garden and fill it with water-loving plants.
