Planting and Care of dwarf fruit trees
Start by buying young plants. Choose those that are not rooted in a pot, so you can get fruit sooner. Then take a jar of 25 liters minimum. Line the bottom with a layer of gravel or clay pellets. Fill with a mixture of garden soil, potting soil in equal parts, with a handful of fertilizer and plant your fruit tree there. Watering should be frequent during the first month, regular summer and reduced winter. Fertilize the soil with organic fertilizers such as manure or ground the horn just before flowering.
Every two years, remember to repot your tree. Use this time to change the world. If this proves too difficult, remove only the layer of soil to the surface. Replace it with compost or garden soil to aerate the soil cool and restore nutrients to the plant. Remove excess fruit if desired. Use organic products to remove pathogens.
