Back by popular demand, bare root trees for sale
Orders due by November 1
Fruit trees that have proven reliable at the University of Nevada Cooperative Extension Research Center and Demonstration Orchard will again be made available to the public. The Master Gardeners will accept orders for bare-root fruit trees until November 1, 2014. Order forms listing the varieties and prices are available via email.
A bare root fruit tree comes without soil or leaves. It is light and easy to plant, but since there is no soil, the roots must be kept moist. Planting directions will be provided. The trees will be available for pick-up at the Demonstration Orchard in late January/early February 2015. Payment is due at that time.
The Research Center and Demonstration Orchard (4600 Horse Drive, North Las Vegas, Nev.) is devoted to cultivating fruits and vegetables that can be sustainably produced in the Mojave Desert. Produce, compost and mulch are available seasonally. Master Gardeners offer instruction in planting, pruning and maintaining fruit trees. The Research Center and Demonstration Orchard is open to the public on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays from 8 a.m. to noon.
For questions or more information, email the Master Gardener Help Desk or call 702-257-5555. The Help Desk is staffed with volunteer Master Gardeners Monday-Friday from 8am to 5pm.
