Join us to learn how to get the most of all the fruit and veggies in your landscape! First we’ll share tips and techniques to help your tomatoes achieve peak performance. Tomatoes aren’t always easy, but there are things you can do to set your plants up for success.

In the second half of class we’ll learn about summer pruning of fruit trees. While fruit trees are pruned in late winter for health, summer pruning is done for size control. This session will show you how and why summer pruning is another tool to use to maximize your enjoyment of the fruits you can grow.
