    Deer love to eat the leaves and fruit on my apple tree. I never saw deer as being a pest until I started gardening again.

    Congrats on the new pear tree. I can't wait to see that once it's going strong. Very interesting. I hope it does well for you!

    it is pronounced (esp pil yea d) the large branches shooting straight up from the first tier should be pruned down to two or three buds when dormant or they can take over the tree.

    You are doing a lot. Are you doing this yourself or with hired help?

    Such a great video, I love following along on all your progress! I just, for the first time, got a few grape vines. I was wondering if I would plant them the same way as you planted the fruit tree? Thanx so much for all the great info!!

    We've had more success with our HD tree purchases than from that of the local nursery! We got a bunch in the middle of summer for 50% off. I'm really looking forward to see how well the grafted pears produce for us. Good luck on the new homestead.

    Thanks for the video, it is very timely. I just bought an apple tree to set out and now I am confident that I was doing it right. thanks a bunch.

    You have SO much energy, Gary! I like growing bonsai because they are small and easier to maintain (I have a bad back). Your grand kids are going to have such a nice place to visit and eat! =)

    New subscriber. I've learned a lot from watching your videos.


    (June 14, 2019 - 4:28 pm)

    Was the tree root bound? And if so what did you do about it?

    That pear tree looks really special. Is it supposed to be planted against a wall like a peach tree? I hope you show when it starts to bear fruit. Cheers

    Its nice that you bought a Espalier tree, but you should have a support system to continue the training of the tree. Wire and posts are really all that are needed, and heavy pruning is needed for the tree to keep its shape. Nice video 🙂

    Great information and great comments are free tree planting.😎😎😎

    Why do I get your ads on YouTube for about 2 seconds and then it switches to a totally unrelated ad? For example, "welcome to the rusted garden " (approximately 2 seconds) and then a commercial for Flownase takes over.

    are u doing this all yourself?


    (June 14, 2019 - 4:28 pm)

    I use a auger to plant trees but not every one has one but if you have one I would suggest using it. I have a orchard so I use mine quite a bit.

    S – pal – yea. Or S – paul – yea
    The pronunciation of " yea " is like " hey". Hey you !. You dropped your wallet. But you got to change hey to yey, spelled as yea

    Pal is pronounced like Hey pal. Can you spot me a twenty
    Hey pal. Can you loan me twenty dollars

    I'm surprised you aren't familiar with the espaliered method?

    And from everything I've read, experts are now saying NOT add any fertilizer or even compost to encourage roots to reach out to look for nutrients.

    But I'm still a fan! 😊

    Edit: just saw your comment below. I'm sure your right and it's not a game changer. Also, i believe we attempt the French pronunciation and say "ESS-PA-LEE-AID". But I am not very smart so take that for what it's worth.

    Which home Depot location did you find the espalier tree? Or if you could give us the exact name home Depot calls it if you don't want us knowing which part of Maryland you live in, so we can look it up!

    Gary, can I send you some cover crop seed for you to do a trial area. Maybe off away from everything.


    (June 14, 2019 - 4:28 pm)

    i read not to fertilize for the first 3-6 months to encourage the tree to send out roots looking for nutrients. Thoughts?
