Question: 

What would be a good planting site for fruit trees?

Answer: 

Selecting the proper planting site is critical when planting fruit trees in the home landscape.  While fruit trees can be grown on a wide variety of soils, good soil drainage is imperative.  Apples and other fruit trees do not tolerate wet soils.  Fruit trees planted in poorly drained soils often die within a few years of planting.  Most fruit trees grow well in fertile soils with a pH of 6.0 to 7.5.  Because of space restrictions, planting sites are often limited in the home landscape.  Fruit trees require full sun.  Select a site that receives at least 8 hours of direct sun each day.   Avoid shady sites near large trees.
