Fruit Tree Expert at Master Gardener Orchard
If your interest lies in growing fruit trees, the University of Nevada Cooperative Extension Master Gardener Orchard is hosting a tour and discussion at 2 p.m. on Thursday, February 16. Join Tom Spellman, from Dave Wilson Nursery, as he introduces new fruit tree varieties at the Orchard. Spellman is a fruit tree expert, specializing in citrus, so be sure to bring your questions.
The Master Gardener Orchard is located at 7700 Horse Road, approximately 100 yards east of the intersection of North Decatur and Horse Drive in North Las Vegas. The Orchard is a research and demonstration facility designed to test the suitability of fruit and vegetable varieties for our desert climate and transfer the knowledge on how to grow them here.
This event happens only once a year! For more information about the workshop call Jon Chodacki at 702-257-5532. For information about the Orchard, please email or call the Master Gardeners at 702-257-5555.
