#ProPlantTips for Care
Give your Apricot trees at least 6 hours of direct sunlight a day. They thrive in full sun locations, especially if you can choose a spot that receives the drying power of the morning sun.
Well-drained soil is a must. Improve your drainage by creating a mounded heap of soil 3 feet wide to a depth of 12 to 18 inches above your soil line. You can also plant in a raised bed.
Give a thick layer of mulch over the root system. Apply at least 3 to 4 inches of mulch, and spread it out 3 feet from the outside of the canopy.
Prune to sculpt your tree into a goblet-shape with wide-spreading lateral branches. 45 degree angles are strong and can support the weight of your yearly harvest.
If you want to keep your tree smaller, plan to conduct an annual summer prune. Tip prune the new growth for size control.
