Protocol for Fruit Tree Program

We’re gearing up for the Fruit Trees On Steroids class in Washington early February, and in doing so have been going over some of the things we’ll be covering.

We thought you might like to see what the basic protocol is that we’re going to be discussing more in depth at that time. We’ve provided the outline form that you’re welcome to download by CLICKING HERE.

There’s still time to join us on February 5-6 in Yakima, Washington. Registration can be done online at or by calling Katie in the office at 507-235-6909.


If you have any questions or comments about the points raised in Protocol for Fruit Tree Program, we welcome them here.

Looking forward to seeing you there!

Jon Frank

    Hi Jon,
    I will not be able to make your Fruit Tree Program. Hope that you will offer all this information on a DVD in the near future. Hurry up and finish your book!

    Sincerely yours,

  2. Rick Guttersohn says:

  3. Jonathan Bossick says:

    I am wondering whether the cd/dvd from the fruit tree workshop will be available for sale as i can not make the workshop. Thanks Jonathan

  4. Charles,

    Yes the class will be recorded and available on DVD’s. Hopefully soon on the book.

    Thanks for this outline, Jon,

    I would like to be there but I’ll have to watch the DVD. I hope you have a great turn out.

  6. Christine Young says:

    Interesting recommendation about planting a fruit tree’s predominate roots facing magnetic north. My large yard is already planted out but I do replace or add some fruit trees every once in a while.

    I live in central Florida. Do any of your recommendations not apply to a (sandy soil) sub-tropical climate?

    I have a passion for growing fruits. Wish that I could be there.

  7. Hi Christine,

    Just a caution on the use of K-Mag with citrus trees.
    Pruning timing may be different for your area. The rest should apply.


  8. Thanks Jon

    We planted our 20 trees according to how you recommend and 20 normally. At the end of the first year, the ones we planted according to your methods are about twice the size compared to the others

    Thank you for posting your fruit tree protocol. The only thing I’m not certain of is your “tree planting method.” This sounds specific and important. Can I find this somewhere else on the site?
