When is the Best Time of the Year to Plant a Pear Tree?

You know pears are delicious, but after seeing how pear trees can look in a garden, you may want to try growing your own.  But you can’t plant a tree according to your whim, could you?

You should know when to plant pear trees so you can be sure they will survive and bear fruits.  So, when should you do it?

It is best to plant pear trees when they are dormant and that should be in late winter until early spring.  Late fall planting would allow the roots to gain a strong foothold in the new soil, that is, if the hole is big enough.

Also, when the weather is cool, the sap will flow slowly, so any damage to the roots would be minimal.

This doesn’t mean though, that you cannot plant pear trees at any other time.  You still can.  However, you have to make sure that the soil is not frozen or too dry.

Before planting, soak the roots in water for about 30 minutes.  Plant your pear trees before its buds open.  Make sure they are sufficiently watered, with enough nutrients in the soil and your pear trees will reward you with delicious, succulent fruits.
