Pear Tree - Planting Instructions

Planting Time

  • Trees should be planted as soon as they arrive
  • Bare root stock is available from October to March
  • Avoid freezing conditions, where the ground is frozen

Positioning Trees

  • Needs a sunny spot
  • Ideally plant close to a wall for added shelter
  • Avoid frosty locations, protect from early Spring frost
  • Prepare soil well, dig over & add farm yard manure
  • Handle plants with care when planting
  • Ensure roots are spread out & all are planted below soil level

Orchard Planting

  • Needs a sunny spot
  • South or west facing slope or site is best
  • Ideally plant close to a wall for added shelter
  • Plan your orchard along a north - south axis
  • Rootstock will determine spacing (Quince A rootstock = 3m apart)
  • Stake trees prior to planting

After Care

  • Soak roots for 10 minutes before planting
  • Water again after planting
  • If dry weather persists, water every 2 days
  • Feed in early Spring
  • Weeding is also essential - especially bind weed which can quickly smoother a young tree
  • After 2 years, check the tree stakes to ensure they are not too tight around the tree
