Apricots are adaptable to most soil types, but do best in well drained, loamy soils. Mulching helps retain moisture, keep roots cool in the hot summer and helps to stabilize the soil temperature. Apply mulch 3 to 4 inches deep and 3 to 4 feet outside the canopy. In poor draining soils consider mounding or raised beds to 12 to 18 inches high Most fruit trees are pruned during their dormant phase in Winter, but apricots do best when pruned in Summer. Pruning should be done in July and August after harvest. Apricot trees explode with fragrant white blossoms in early Spring and grow quickly so they are attractive in landscaping. The trees can live for up to 75 years.
