Bounty From Your Garden: Fruit Trees 101 @ Rodgers Ranch Heritage Center
Jan 18 @ 10:00 am – 12:00 pm

Fresh fruit off your tree is so much better than what you find in stores! The best time to plant fruit trees and berries is in January and February, when nurseries have the best selection of bare root plants. Learn how to choose, prep, plant, prune, and maintain your fruit trees. Special attention will be given to keeping them small through first and subsequent pruning (dwarfing rootstock doesn’t keep them small). We will also touch on berries and go over differences in planting blackberries, raspberries and blueberries.
