Whether you're a commercial or hobby producer or a home gardener planning a home orchard, success in fruit plantings depends on good site preparation and layout. This publication is designed to help eliminate potential problems before planting—and reduce money and effort needed in later management practices. Includes recommendations for preparing the site, determining home orchard size, laying out the tree fruit orchard, laying out small fruit plantings, and determining planting distances. Valuable tables help determine home orchard size and planting distances for Alabama fruit trees; includes clear layout illustrations for both level and steep/rugged planting sites.
