Triangle Gatherings Blocks 48

I hope EVERYONE is having a great weekend…just thought I would sneak this in this morning…as I want to get outside and get the last two fruit trees in, in my little orchard on the hill-there a six total…up here…(Jake is really planting those trees.)I bought a Granny Smith Apple…Honey crisp and a Wolf River all semi dwarfs…then two plum trees and one cherry tree….I think its the perfect spot for them…I then have a few other things I want to get into the ground today…remember I am planting a “white” garden…with a few exceptions..

And then I think the garden will be set…

I am wondering about the 11 planters I planted…half look like this, these face south…and then the other half look like this they are facing west….Would you rotate them, I need your advice?

Here is block 48…Enjoy!!!

    I rotate my pots a half circle every monday. Also put just a bit of miracle grow in the water on Monday and Thursday. Constant watering washes away nutrients, so using miracle grow keeps them looking good even in heat

    would rotate for sure with a little help from Miracle Grow:)

    I agree with all the previous comments. Miracle grow is wonderful

    they look great but may not be getting the same amount of sun. if not too heavy you may need to move the pots around to keep them looking the same.

    It looks like the planters facing south are getting to much sun. I’m afraid if you rotate them then they will all look like that. Are the plants in the planters meant for full sun?

    Those two containers are getting different amounts of sun and at different temperatures, as well. Trade places every afternoon, right before the hottest part of the day. Water in the mornings, with a little extra added to the plants that are receiving the most sun, but don’t overdo it: If the petunia leaves start to yellow, they’re getting too much water.

    As for the fruit trees, they need to be spaced a good 30 feet apart, and I’d recommend a patch of lavender somewhere in the yard to help repel codling moth as well as to attract pollinating insects.

    And thank you for another beautiful quilt block!

    I learned the hard way that you need 2 cherry trees to gat cherries. After a few years of no cherries I talked to the nursery guy. He told me you need 2 trees to cross pollinate to get fruit. I should of asked sooner.

    Hi Lisa, The fruit trees will be fun when they blossom and then bear fruit, you chose s lovely spot for them. I was wondering if you’re going to add any white daisies to your garden? As for the planters… those look heavy! While it may benefit the south facing, are there other plants that would thrive better vs. moving? Hugs, Jakey

    Lisa, if you have a golden delicious apple tree it pollinates most all other apple trees.

    Definitely rotate!

    I am jealous that you have a honey crisp apple tree! Scrumptious!!
    I can’t even remember to water my pots, let alone rotate them. I have no advice. : )

    Just got home from our camper. Had a great weekend. I looked at emails and saw this one, and had to read right away. i think yes rotate the planters. That will balance them out. You could also do an experiment and leave them where they are and see if they ever catch-up. Interesting!

    Rotate them. They’ll fill out and look great from any angle that way.

    I think to rotate your plants is always a good thing.
    More so if the sun exposure is different.
    Congratulations on your fruit trees. Never enough
    Fresh fruit.
