Gardening Tip of the Day

  • Fall is an excellent time to plan and plant fruit bearing plants. When planning an orchard area in the garden, avoid shading problems by planting smaller growing fruits to the south and taller ones to the north. For example, starting in the south end of the area plant fruits in this order: strawberries, raspberries, dwarf trees, semi-dwarf or full-sized fruit trees. To utilize space north of the tallest fruit trees, plant rhubarb which can take some shade.
    Plant fruits in a good, rich, well-drained soil after plenty of compost has been worked into it. When purchasing fruit trees, be sure to ask if they need a second tree or another variety of that tree to act as a pollinator.
