High Density Home Orchard Management
Angela Chandler, The Garden Academy


More variety, less work!  This is a management system that will allow you to plant more fruits in the space you already have without climbing ladders or using complicated tools and equipment.  You will harvest enough fruit for fresh eating, preserving, and sharing from trees that are easy to care for and highly ornamental.


11:30am
Pest and Disease Management
Bill Adams, Author & Horticulturist

Growing Fruit In Containers
Angela Chandler, The Garden Academy


There are SO many reasons to grow fruit in containers.  And there are SO many fruits that will live happily there for many years as long as some basic needs are met.  It’s all about choosing the right container types and size, soil management, fertilization, top & root pruning, and timely repotting.


2:30pm
