Hi all - hailing from VA, 1st post here! I've got a few questions. I did a soil test last year & my soil pH was low (5.3). I added a ton (3 actually) of Lime & once the snow melts & the ground dries out some I'll do another test. 1. I've got a 12' tall apple tree that has two 3" bifurcated trunks about 2' above ground level, should I leave the central / upright one & prune the other more horizontal leader? 2. I ordered a dozen more Apple & Pear trees that should be here in a few weeks. I bought some 5' tall 2x4" 14 ga. welded wire for deer protection around my Apples & Pears. What diameter would you recommend me making the cage circles? 3. What diameter do you make the aluminum window screen to go around the bottom 2' of trunk? I assume I want the window screen pretty loose once stapled back to itself. 4. What medium should I plant them in? I'm planning on using good planting mix along w/ the native soil (50/50) unless there's something else y'all would recommend? 5. When should I fertilize & with what? Thanks for any info!!!
