Planting trees in spring or autumn. Basically, spring and autumn are the best seasons to plant a tree.

The dormant season between October and March is ideal for this, provided the ground is not frozen. Because then the temperatures are more balanced and the moisture conditions more favourable than during the rest of the year.

For fruit trees like the apple tree, autumn is the ideal planting time. At this time of year the trees grow particularly well and can take root well until spring. Thus, the plants have more growth already in the first year. In addition, the weather is usually wetter in autumn than in spring, so you don’t have to water constantly.
