What's the best way to stake a fruit tree?
Posted by Suttons Staff on 09 December 2014 02:55 PM

When you come to plant your fruit tree into its final position, we recommend that a high quality stake is used that can be left in place for a number of years.   This should be inserted before planting to avoid root damage at a later stage and it should penetrate the soil by about 2ft.   To prevent damage to the tree itself, use a purpose-made soft tree tie that can be loosened periodically as the tree grows.  This will secure the tree and act as a cushion against wind rock.
