Successfully growing fruit for your family becomes straightforward when you narrow the big picture down to getting the basics right.This workshop, led by expert Michael Phillips, of Lost Nation Orchard in northern New Hampshire, covers complementary sprays backed by biodiversity and soil health to set the stage for successfully growing tree fruit in the western Massachusetts/tri-state region. Learn how fungal disease becomes manageable with wise variety choices and enhanced soil biology. Even major insect challenges can be resolved safely when you perceive who, what, and when. All sorts of fruits-from apples and pears to peaches and cherries and onward to berries-make for a diverse home-orchard planting.
