Choose a sunny or partly shaded position in soil that doesn't get too dry in summer or waterlogged through the winter months. When planting, dig a hole that's twice the size of the original container and add a handful of suitable fertiliser to the soil that will be used to refill the hole around the plants roots. Firm the soil around your tree and water well before e and after planting. A handful of general fertiliser can be sprinkled around the base of the tree each spring and a layer of well rotted manure or garden compost can be added to top up the soil. Your tree should not need much pruning but remove any straggly shoots in late summer or large branches in winter.
