Apple Tree Mulch Trick from Kelly Ware

Mike saw Kelly Ware share this fruit tree mulch trick on Facebook the other day and did it around out orchard to give our trees a boost of compost mulch!

First we soaked the base of the tree because despite the rain this summer Montana is still very dry beneath the surface.

Then we took some recycled newspaper and soaked it in a bucket of water.

He then laid the newspapers around the base of the tree in a circle.

 

Finally we covered it all with 4-6″ of compost we got from a local landscape company.

 

If you haven’t listened to my interview with Kelly Ware it’s a great one from way back in the beginning. She shares so many valuable golden seeds I had to break it in two! IMG_7659.JPG
