Description

Learn to plant your own backyard orchard!

This class is the third part of our 'Home Orchard' series, including 'Summer Fruit Tree Thinning and Pruning for Quality' (6/17/2017), 'Fall Fruit Tree Pruning for Beauty and Bounty' (10/14/2017), and 'Bare-root Fruit Tree Planting' (this class). Puchase your tickets early and save!

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 local projects, such as City Trees and Incredible Edible Redwood City. To read all about his experience, visit his website, Tom’s Edible Gardens.

We are delighted at your interest in this class. Please review Common Ground's adult class policies before making your ticket purchase.
