Pear tree in Botanical Gardens.

Pear tree located at the Outdoor Education Center’s Botanical Gardens.

Figs, nectarines, peaches, apricots, pears, apples, strawberries, cantaloupe, grapes and blackberries are just a few of the fruits you can grow at home.

The fruit varieties may be different than what you’re used to but the results can still be spectacular.

Let Angela O’Callaghan, social horticulturist, explain what plant attributes to look for when planning your home orchard.

Homeowners and other interested parties are welcome to attend the Gardening in Small Places workshop.
