Backyard fruit trees are a reemerging trend in our area. With rising interest in locally grown foods, and organic production increasing, more of us are thinking about growing fruit at home. If you are thinking about planting a fruit tree (or shrub) this class is for you.
We will discuss the pros and cons of growing fruit at home. What are the costs and labor involved? What type of fruit is most likely to succeed in your landscape?
We will cover how to do a pre-planting site evaluation, as well as the conditions needed by different types of fruit. Also included: How to find the fruit tree or shrub of your dreams!
