Yesterday I saw some trees done by a local amish nursery owner at 
about the same time I grafted trees last year.  His results are far 
superior to mine but he wouldn't share his secrets with me except to 
say he watered them 2x  per week and asked if I saw the geese up in 
the field by where he has his tree nursery? I watered my trees 2 or 3 
x per week last year with a dripper system, fertilized them 3 or 4 x 
per season with a manure tea, kept the weeds down but my whips are at 
max. 3' tall and his trees are 5-6' tall. He dug them late in the
fall and put them in cold storage and had potted them for sale about a 
month ago. What am I missing or should I buy geese?
