This class is part of the 'Home Orchard' series, including 'Summer Fruit Tree Thinning and Pruning for Quality' (8/6), 'Fall Fruit Tree Pruning for Beauty and Bounty' (10/22), and 'Bare-root Fruit Tree Planting' (this class).
Do you know how to choose an appealing apricot tree? How to care for a mulberry? How much water a pomegranate tree needs in this drought?
This workshop is your chance to learn hands-on what an arborist sees when selecting and caring for fruit trees. Tom Cronin, a masterful arborist, will take you into the garden to plant some trees and learn about...
- Bare root definition
- Tree/plant selection
- Timing of plantings
- Hole size and planting depth
- How to fertilize trees best
- Water basin and watering requirements, especially in the drought
- Critter protection (including gophers, deer, squirrels, birds, rats, raccoons, etc.)
Tom Cronin has gardened for over 25 years, and he is extensively involved in a number of garden projects. To read all about his experience, visit his website, Tom's Edible Gardens.
