Fruit trees nashville TN

I am trying to find the proper fruit tree to plant in my backyard to have as close to a fruit tree as I can find. I found your website and I am so impressed with the fruits of these trees. They are so beautiful, healthy, and fragrant. I have several fruit trees that are just taking off right now and I need to make a decision on which type of tree to plant to keep the fruit production to the same level. I live in Nashville, Tennessee. There are so many options to buy from, but can anyone tell me the best and worst, best location of the fruit trees in TN? I have done my research and have found the perfect location for all kinds of fruit trees. My yard is in the very middle of TN on the city side of Franklin, just above the freeway. My backyard is about an acre in size.

I am also interested in learning how to water my trees. I've never watered them before and I am worried I will kill them. I live in nashville, Tennessee, is there a recommended tree for that location? Also, how often should I water my trees? Can I water them all at once in the fall and in the spring? Is there a time frame I should wait to plant my fruit trees? Thanks.

I have been told there is an apple tree from a friend that does very well in the same area of nashville as you, if that's what you are looking for. I also think you would find you would want to be sure and not cut any trees on any limbs in the area where you want to plant fruit trees, also it would be advisable not to use the hose on them at all if you have a sprinkler system, it can dry out the root system of the tree.

Is there a difference between the kind of drip you have in your system, and a sprinkler?

I'm assuming you're talking about an automatic system. There are three types of drip systems.

1) Waterfall. I've seen the pictures, they look beautiful but are not particularly useful for irrigation purposes. They are nice if you want to water something by hand.

2) Sprinkler. They work very well for both irrigation and hand-watering.

3) Drip. They are the best choice for a fruit tree. They take up very little room, water at the rate you want, the whole tree is surrounded by a water-saving "sleeve" which protects it from harsh weather, etc. They don't have the look of a true sprinkler but give it's benefits. Best of all, they are relatively inexpensive.

So that's the first two... the third one is drip-based and takes up much less room.

Yes, my system has a hose for sprinkling/misting etc. but it's pretty much a backup (it can water anything in less than 5 minutes if the power goes out, so it's rarely used)

This year, I have to use a hose in case the weather gets cold, but in early April, the ground is still fairly moist so it would be safe to use a drip system with the hose turned off for now?

Do I have to water anything on the hose from the drip system?

Not with the hose if it is off. My last hose was about 6 feet and had three zones. You will want a hose at least 8' long because it will run over several trees and the water won't have to go over the same distance twice.

My last hoses have also been with timers. So it does not matter whether you use an electronic timer or a manual. Timer does not work on hose as it has a check valve on it and you can not shut it off, only turn it off. You have to turn hose off.

When I was a kid we had to use hoses on this system. Back then they would run off a hose about 5-6 ft long. Then the water could be turned on and off by a simple pump handle. We lived in the city and there would be several times during the summer when the entire city would cut power due to high summer power rates. We did not have heaters on our homes so running hoses on a drip system wasn't a problem for us. If I remember correctly, I believe that we had to water every couple of days to ensure a good growing season.

I think I understand what you are saying. You don't want to be filling up your bucket that often? This is where I guess what I don't understand about what you are saying is I just don't get what you mean by "you can not shut it off." I do have a check valve on the end. My current hose has a small cap that I can pop to stop water flow. That's my current setup. So what is the difference?

This is for an irrigation sprinkler. I do not have sprinkler system, however, in some of the posts I read they mentioned that they would pump water by hand or use electric switch to water. I don't know how to make that type of switch. It is on a 3rd floor. I do have a tank on the 2nd floor which is where I will install the pump. I was just wondering if my irrigation pump could be activated by a switch. So basically would it mean I have to go to the roof, activate the switch by hand, pump water, turn off, replace cap, etc.

I found some articles talking about pump shut off valves. But it didn't specify it will activate an irrigation system.

I would say that if you are just planning to run water to keep the lawn watered, then you do not need to worry about a shut off valve. Just use an appropriate sized hose for your garden, and water when needed.

I do not know how much water the system needs, but if it runs only in the summer and you have the hose turned on for only that period of time, then the only time it needs to be
