Basic Fruit Tree Care and Planting (HMNS)

This class will teach you the basics of fruit tree selection, planting, care, and maintenance. Fruit trees are wonderful additions to the urban landscape with beautiful flowers, fragrance, and the reward of organically grown fruits. They support pollinators and can provide habitat for birds. We will cover temperate fruit trees, citrus, and the semi-tropical varieties that are appropriate for our area. Participants will receive a month-by-month calendar for fruit tree care – pruning, pest control, harvesting and fertilization. If you don’t have enough space, fruit trees can also be grown in containers! There are no refunds on classes.
