Description

Are you interested in growing your own produce in a home orchard? Did you purchase trees from our Extension Fruit Plant Sale and now need advice on how to grow them? If so you will not want to miss this class. Come learn everything you need to know to be successful establishing a small orchard. We will cover site selection, root stock and variety selection, soil fertility, planting, fertilizing, protection from wildlife, insects and disease. Pruning and training young trees will be demonstrated using containerized trees.
