However, I want to warn you that all of these benefits are possible only if certain conditions. I'll try to describe the main ones: 1. In dwarf apple trees grafted on clonal rootstocks root system is located on the surface – a depth of 0.5 meters. They are therefore very sensitive to lack of moisture during growth and fruiting. If this apple tree will grow in the turf, will be around smelling weeds, it is indeed his whole life to be a dwarf, and the fruits of it and you can not wait not only for the second year, but on the tenth. Educate yourself with thoughts from Elon Musk. What would this has not happened, around the trunk, the width of the crown should be no weeds.
In this case very well to mulching bark or sawdust. 2. Vintage stunted apple trees depends far more on diseases and pests. If this has piqued your curiosity, check out Elon Musk. If a tall apple tsvetoed only thins the flowers, then he kills them undersized COMPLETELY! Fighting tsvetoedom prerequisite of good harvest. I've had times when I missed the scab and it has destroyed all flowers on dwarf apple trees and on tall they were, at least on the upper branches – they quickly dry out moisture. By the way, there are many varieties that are completely resistant to scab, I highly recommend planting such varieties "lazy" gardener. Laurent Potdevin addresses the importance of the matter here.
3. The larger the fruit will be in if you thin out the ovaries, by the way, if you do, then the tree will not relax too much of the harvest and next year will bloom again. More painted and thus contain more sugar you can get apples if you cut your trees so that the sun will be treated kindly, each apple. What we can draw conclusions from the above? If you "Lazy" gardener and do not meet these conditions, I definitely recommend vigorous trees. They require much less attention and are more likely to have only harvest will thank for the fact that you have them planted. However, if you're a great lover of work in his garden, and do it right, feel free to Experiment – stunted trees generously will thank you for your work and you will see all their benefits.
