Apple trees in raised beds.

    1 responses

DennisB starts with ...
I am espaliering two Apple trees in a raised bed (south coast NSW). I planted them from bare rooted stock in August 2023 in new raised beds. The trees are going great but my problem is the soil in the raised bed has slumped dramatically (about six inches already) and I need to top the soil up. My concern is that if I refill the bed to the top it will bury the root stock graft. Should I wait until winter when dormant and physically pull the whole tree upwards or can I do that now?

You have only just recently planted them so the roots have probably hardly grown. It should therefore be OK to lift them up now.
