Program Description

Event Details

Growing fruit trees in a city is significantly different from growing them in a rural area. Learn how to avoid common mistakes when planting fruit trees in the low desert, when and how to plant, and how to manage your trees through irrigation and fertilization so they survive their first summer. Join Steve Sheard as he shares 38 years of experience gathering over 35 fruiting trees in his Tempe yard from citrus to apples, from bananas to guavas.
