#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.

Apricot Tree Frequently Asked Questions

How long does it take for Autumn Glo Apricot Trees to bear fruit?

Nature Hills Nursery sells fruit trees with mature root systems that are already three to four years old, so you’ll enjoy fruit sooner than you would with younger trees!

How Fast Do Autumn Glo Apricot Trees Grow?

Once your apricot tree has been established (after the first year), it can typically add 12-18 inches of new growth in a growing season. If your plants are adding less than that in a season, it may be worth your while to check the fertility level.

Do You Need 2 Apricot Trees to Produce Fruit?

Many apricot trees are self-fertile, however planting more than one apricot tree that blooms at about the same time, boosts yields on both trees and extends your harvest time! The Autumn Glo Apricot Tree is self-pollinating and doesn't need a pollinator to produce fruit.

Apricot trees that need a pollinator partner will have the appropriate tree(s) listed for you to choose from. Nature Hills Nursery lists pollinators for each tree on the product pages. This gives you must-have information right at your fingertips!
