Factors to consider
 
Choosing an apple tree to plant in your garden :
 
It's recommended that apple trees be planted in a sunny location where the soil is well drained.

You can still plant an apple tree in summer or in autumn if the apple tree you have just bought is in a pot.

Choosing an apple tree to plant in your garden :
 
In most cases, apple trees are not self-fertile. If you want to have apples, you will need to buy at least two varieties of apple tree to ensure fertilization in order to obtain fruit.
