Grow Your Own Fruit and Summer Focus on Pollinator Friendly Plants

May 18, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

Come learn the basics of soil preparation, planting, and maintenance of fruit trees, and how to encourage insects that will increase yields.

Want to learn about growing fruit trees from the ground up? Come learn the basics of soil preparation, planting, and maintenance of fruit trees. While some species can be difficult in our area, we’ll share our top tips for selecting plants that will succeed.

Good fruit set depends on the work of pollinators (and not just for fruit trees!). In the second half of class, we’ll talk about how to encourage a good population of insects that will work to increase your yields.

Join the Extension Master Gardener℠ Volunteers of Durham County and Ashley Troth (Extension Horticulture Agent) to learn gardening tricks and tips at the Briggs Avenue Community Garden.
