Grow Your Own: Apple Trees from A to Z

Be a part of something fresh and new happening here at the Botanical Conservatory. For our very first Grow Your Own workshop, Scott Krieg, co-founder of Three Rivers Fruit Growers Club, will teach you the basics of apple tree care. He’ll discuss many points, from the best soil to how much sun your new fruit tree will need to grow and produce. Scott will also demonstrate how to graft an apple tree and explain the benefits of this 4000-year-old practice. Take home a grafted, dwarf Liberty apple tree start to continue growing for years to come! Each quarterly Grow Your Own workshop will introduce a new plant and offer all the knowledge you will need to care for it at home. Ages 12+. Registration deadline: March 9. Min.10. Max. 24.
