FALBS ELGIN or POSTVILLE Success or failure of your orchard depends on the decisions you make before a tree is planted. For Harry Nichols, horticulturist at Iowa State College, points out that orchard success depends upon variety, section of the state, location of the orchard, its distance from existing groves of windbreaks and the distance between trees. Nichols says the most common mis- j take made in home orchards is planting trees too close together. While apples should be planted 35 to 40 feet apart, in many orchards they're as close as 15 feet. Grapes often are planted but four feet apart when they need at least eight feet so the vines will have room to run. The site chosen for the orchard and small fruit planting should be well- drained. Fruits don't thrive on "wet feet." There should be air "drainage" as well as moisture drainage. Pockets where the cold air can settle in with no outlet should be avoided. Trees do best planted on the north side of a grove or windbreak. It's more important to protect them from the southwest winds of summer than the northwest winds of winter. If they're planted north of a grove, space the nearest row of fruit trees at least 80 to 100 feet beyond the grove. On rolling ground, plant on the north or northeast slope rather than the south or southeast. On ground that's too rolling, terrace before planting and set the trees on the terrace.
