The trees are about three years old and maybe four feet tall, so I probably shouldn’t worry, but I have no experience with fruit trees so I’m terrified of killing them.
I’ve also filled my flower bed with geraniums. We’ll see how well take, but I planted half of them about a week ago, and the rest last Saturday. The reason for the split time frame is simple, I thought I would only need six, but I needed twelve. The flower bed is bigger than I thought.
