Fruit tree spacing & irrigation

Getting ready to plant about a dozen different fruit trees, semi-dwarf, need advice on spacing. Also would you use drip or sprinklers for watering? All advice is greatly appreciated! Thanks to all, Ernie

Hi Ernie,

Your trees should be spaced so the mature crown of each tree doesn't grow into the one next to it.

Drip irrigation would be much better then sprinklers. Here's some helpful sites.

If you need pruning info it would be helpful to know which fruit trees you are planting.
