Planting a new tree
Getting your fruit tree off to a healthy start means buying a healthy tree and planting it correctly. Root health is critical for tree health, and this class demonstrates the key considerations in planting a new tree. Fruit trees and shrubs will be available for purchase at City People’s Garden Store and proceeds from their sale will benefit City Fruit. All berries and small fruits (rhubarb) are organic.
