Most of our meetups focus on growing vegetables and other annual plants. This meetup will discuss growing fruit trees, fruit vines, and other edible perennials in small spaces. Winter is often the best time for planting these and they will soon be available in your local nurseries.
We will cover:
Chill hours and its impact on what fruit you can grow.
Getting fruit all year long
Growing trees and bushes in the ground.
(Very different rules than annuals in raised beds)
Growing trees and bushes in pots.
Ways of packing lots of trees in a small space.
Examples of Fruits you can grow:
Apples, apricots, Bananas, black berries, blue berries, citrus (lemons, limes, oranges, etc.), dragon fruit (and other exotics), figs, grapes, loquats, nectarines, pears, plucots, plums, persimmons, raspberries, strawberries, etc. Plan carefully and you can have fresh fruit all year long.
