Courtesy of this Gardeners World clip, here's one way of planting an apple tree.

I'll be using a fairly similar method tomorrow with my planting.

Only comment I would make is that the hole could have been deeper.  If you break up the soil in a deeper hole you have more air circulating around the roots and allow quicker penetration of the roots.

I think the template is stupid - surely people know how to dig a circular hole?
