Hi Brett, sorry not to reply earlier..

Looks like a good plan. I would be careful about the sides of the hole made by a post hole digger. If they are shiny from turning the digger then rough them up a bit with a crowbar or shovel or else the roots won't get through the sides,

thnx dave will watch the sides as u say but its a manual posthole digger so prob wont be as shiney as a powered one. your input is important to me,my mrs will be happy to have it in the ground lol,plus when it starts producing ;) ill let you know when there is some to give away ;)

Ive got a seedling tree that came from a Pink Lady apple I was eating.  When I got to the core I noticed that the seeds were sprouting so I tried planting them.  One has survived and is now about 3 ft. tall in my yard.  Looks very healthy and I wondered what to expect from it?  Thanks anybody for any info, Kelly.
