Column apple tree

Asked October 7, 2016, 2:27 PM EDT

I have a columnar apple tree that has been in a pot on my deck this summer, it has done well and I am wondering how to prepare it for winter? Thanks.

Sink the pot into the ground and mulch the top. If deer enter your yard fence it off to protect it. Deer really like young apple wood. Be sure to water the tree until the ground freezes.

Thanks!
