Growing Tips for Organic Apples
I planted two apple trees several years ago and am always on the lookout for good organic growing advice. Last year I bagged the apples on the trees using small ziplock plastic bags. The apples were pest free and delicious. Today I came across this organic apple growing article and thought I'd share it with you. Be sure to view the little pop up windows showing how to use brown paper bags and how to thin the apples. A novice I am ... but hope to give my trees a good chance at being organic. Proper root stock and apple variety is also helpful. Placing insect traps will help alert you that the pests have started arriving as well. If you have a good organic apple growing tip ... please share (pretty please:). Now I'm off to stock up on little brown paper bags.
