Greg’s favorite plants to nurture at the Urban Farm are the fruit trees. They appeal to the lazy gardener, as planting a fruit tree once reaps a bounty for many years to come. The selection of fruit trees that you can grow is vast – peaches, apples, apricots, plums, pears, citrus and more – discovering just what works and how to pick a perfect fruit tree for your yard can be perplexing.
Join Greg as he walks you through the three most important things to know about growing fruit trees in your yard. It REALLY is quite simple. You will learn:
- The single biggest thing that you need to know when growing fruit trees in the desert
- Why nurseries of all kinds sell you fruit trees that will never make fruit
- How to spread out your fruit tree harvest over months rather than weeks
- A watering technique that virtually guarantees success
