Fruitscaping™ with Apricot Trees

Infuse your landscape with the sweet fragrance and vibrant colors of Apricot Trees in your Fruitscaping™ journey. These delightful trees not only provide a bounty of succulent fruits but also contribute to an enchanting garden ambiance.

Apricot trees thrive in well-drained soils, rich in organic matter. Amend your soil with compost or well-rotted manure to improve its nutrient content and texture, thus promoting healthier, more robust trees. They prefer a slightly acidic to neutral pH.

Consider adding a layer of organic mulch around the base of your apricot tree. It aids in conserving soil moisture, suppressing weed growth, and gradually enhancing soil fertility as it decomposes. In addition, mulching helps maintain a cooler root environment in the hot months and offers some frost protection during colder periods.

Apricot varieties bring a delightful diversity of size, flavor, and ripening seasons. Relish the intense sweetness and slight tartness of the fresh fruits, or explore their culinary versatility in jams, preserves, and baked goods.

With their modest growth habit, apricot trees are a wonderful addition to both large and small gardens. Their beautiful spring blossoms offer an annual spectacle, adding a touch of elegance and beauty to your Fruitscaping™ endeavors. They make excellent focal points, and their lush, green foliage provides fantastic summer shade.

If you’re limited on space, consider training apricot trees into an espalier against a wall or fence. Not only does this save space, but it also creates a stunning living art piece. Container cultivation is also an option for those with patio or balcony gardens.

Enjoy the appeal of Fruitscaping™ with Apricot Trees. Relish the journey from careful planting and nurturing to the exhilarating moment of biting into your very own homegrown apricots. It’s a delightful blend of beauty, bounty, and satisfaction.

Shipping Information

Before Your Plants Arrive: You can find many guides on unpacking, planting, & care, on our growing guides page.

The Journey From Our Nursery to Your Door:  We NEVER ship our plants bare root. Your plant will travel in the very container in which it was nurtured. We thoroughly prune and water them before packing, and make sure they’re well wrapped to retain moisture during transit. It’s as though you’ve personally collected them from our nursery!

Choose Your Ship Date: We understand you’ll want to be available when your plant arrives. Our checkout process features a handy calendar that allows you to choose the Monday on which you want your plant to ship. Depending on your location, you’ll likely receive your plant by Wednesday, Thursday, or Friday of that week. Once shipped, UPS will generate a tracking number and send it to the email you provided. You can then follow your plant’s journey and ensure someone is available to unpack it on arrival day.
