PLANTATION TIME OF TUBED (BAGGED) WALNUT SAPLING
Walnut and almond saplings, which are produced as tubed, may be planted in any season of the year.
The facts that their roots are placed in soil continuously and shipment is carried out within soil remove the seasonal restriction in sapling plantation.
However, the climate condition of the region, where plantation shall be carried out, also limits the plantation of tubed sapling, although to a lesser content than open-rooted plantation.
1. If the winters are mild and summers are hot and droughty;
Then, we recommend fall, winter, and spring seasons, in which particularly rain is received in these regions. If you do not have irrigation problem in your plantation area, then plantation may also be carried out in summer season.
2. If the winters and summers are normal;
Plantation of tubed saplings may be carried out in all months.
3. If the winters are harsh and summers are normal;
Then, saplings are not planted in harsh winter season absolutely. The most ideal months for plantation are April, May, and June. It will be very beneficial if the planted sapling enters into winter in its place as strong.
**The sapling pits must be opened in advance, and the soil of the pit must be allowed to meet with sun and oxygen, in planting open-rooted or tubed walnut saplings. **
