Managing a Fruit Tree from Rootstock to Fruiting with Greg Giuliani.

There are many aspects to raising a fruit tree through the first five years of life successfully, including rootstock selection, soils and soil hydration, planting, site relationship, light, root competition, pollination, planting depth, support, and best time to plant. Learn what Greg Giuliani considers the most important aspects at the March 13, 2014 meeting of the Snohomish County Fruit Society. A brief business meeting will precede the presentation.
Greg Giuliani has been a home orchardist in Woodinville area for 15 years. He grew up on a farm near Fall City which had a 1930’s Orchard. He’s been a member of the Seattle Tree Fruit Society since the late 90’s. He has learned to graft to enable him to produce fruit varieties that are not available in nurseries. He enjoys experimenting with different growing and pruning techniques.
