Apple planting question

B3B3 South East LondonPosts: 24,007
Can I plant an apple tree near a dead one?
The tree died of old age and drought rather than disease.
In London. Keen but lazy.

    I don't see why not. They don't have anything problematical like roses. The soil may be impoverished and need  improving before you plant.

    Thanks fidget. Now I've got to pick one - and improve the soil!

    Apples are susceptible to replant disease - see here https://www.rhs.org.uk/advice/profile?PID=572

    I think you should fertilize the soil and apply water before the plantation of your desired tree.
