“So You Want to Plant a Fruit Tree”
with Greg Peterson
Greg’s favorite plants to nurture at the Urban Farm are the fruit trees. Yet if you are just starting out, the selection of fruit trees that you can grow is vast – peaches, apples, apricots, plums, figs, citrus and more – and 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 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. Different layout options so you can have more of the trees you want. How to spread out your fruit tree harvest over months rather than weeks. A watering technique that virtually guarantees success.
