Growing Your Own Fruit Trees


October 23, 2012
Have you ever wanted to grow fresh fruit in your own backyard, but wondered about the best choices for fruit-bearing trees and bushes here in Georgia? This is actually the best time of year to plant fruit trees and shrubs. Their roots can begin to get established over the winter, enabling the plants to grow well next spring and possibly even bear fruit by next season. To learn more about planting your own fruit trees and shrubs, come to a free workshop on Wednesday October 24, 2012 from 7:00 pm to 8:00 pm.

The City of Alpharetta and the Alpharetta Natural Resources Commission, along with the UGA/Fulton County Cooperative Extension and the North Fulton Master Gardeners, will offer their free Fruit Trees and Shrubs Planting and Care Workshop for homeowners. The class will be held at the City of Alpharetta Engineering/Public Works Department, 1790 Hembree Road, Alpharetta, Georgia 30009.

At the workshop you will learn from a local master gardener about fruits that grow well here in Georgia even in small backyards. This class will cover fruit trees (apple, peach, cherry, pear, fig), brambles (raspberry, blackberry), blueberries, strawberries, and grapes. The class will also discuss selection, planting, pruning, disease and pest control, and harvesting. Additional resources will also be provided. To pre-register for this free class, please call (678) 297-6200 by October 22, 2012. For more information about this event, please contact Terry Porter at (678) 297-6200 or tporter@alpharetta.ga.us.
