Good evening my first post here other than my introduction. This spring I planted 6 apple trees all semi dwarf. 2 Roxbury russet, winesap, honeycrisp, cortland, and hunt russet. All have nice new growth finished flowering and have some apples (that I’m going to thin). My “soil” is clay. I Made holes extra big and mixed some garden soil with some perlite to aide in drainage. One Roxbury russet has yellowing leaves and one doesn’t. Before i go and dig the tree up and move it I’d like some advice. I have Been watering consistently being they are newly planted about a month. Once I noticed the leaves yellowing I slowed down on the watering wich was pretty much everyday for a few minutes. The dirt doesn’t seem over saturated.

I'm in the same boat so I'll watch this thread. 1 of the 4 that I planted is doing this. Mine is a Candy Crisp the others are McIntosh, Cortland, and Wolf River. The Fireside and Honey Crisp I planted last year look great.

I'm not worried about mine and will not dig it and shock it that way. But my dead Queen Ann cherry is getting removed.
