I want to plant some apple trees this spring and was looking for some opinions. I know crab apples are easier to grow and produce apples faster. However, do the deer find them as attractive as regular apple trees? If so, what type of crab have you used and what are your experiences? For those of you who have planted either crab or regular or both, what would you advise me? Also, please advise me on your experience regarding how you plant, i.e. spacing, types of trees planted together (late, versus early, etc.) Thanks in advance for your responses Wanna kill these ads?
