Pyrus communis ‘Flemish Beauty’
Tree grows to 3.7 m (12′) with a 3.7-m spread.
Prepare a hole that is about twice the size of the root mass.
Plant in the winter or early spring in fertile, well-drained soil in full sun in a place with good air circulation.
Susceptible to scale and fire blight.
Plant in winter or early spring.
Water newly-planted trees frequently as they establish in their first spring and summer, and before the onset of drought, when mature trees may need watering too. This is particularly important when the fruit starts to swell. Mulch around the rooting area with a 5-cm (2″) layer of well-rotted manure, in March and early April.
