Growing your own Apple Tree
For Apple trees to flower they need a long period at low temperatures which means the climate of the Western Cape is the most suitable, although they can be grown in gardens almost anywhere in South Africa. The best time to plant your apple tree is during winter. The soil must drain well and have a pH of around 6.5. They prefer a sunny position (6+ hours of direct sunlight daily) in the garden and plenty of compost should be added to the hole. Water well during hot seasons and control weeds around the trees to stop them from competing for water and fertiliser. Also apply an organic mulch around the tree.
