Growing Apples & Pears—The Basics, presented by UC Master Gardener Darlene DeRose

Have you ever wanted to grow an apple or pear tree, but didn’t know where to begin?  Do you have an apple or pear tree in your yard and aren’t sure if you are properly caring for it?  This presentation will cover the basics of growing apple and pear trees.  Learn how and where to pick out the right tree for you, how to plant it once you get it home and how to care for and maintain it over time.  If you don’t think you have space for a fruit tree, learn tips on growing trees in small spaces.

Enter the Fairgrounds from West 10th Street, between O and L Streets.  As you head into the fairgrounds, before the roundabout take the first right into the Fairgrounds Administration parking lot.
