Do you know how to choose an appealing apricot tree? How to care for a mulberry? How much water a pomegranate tree needs in this drought? This workshop is your chance to learn hands-on what an arborist sees when selecting and caring for fruit trees. Tom Cronin, a masterful arborist, will take you into the garden to plant some trees and learn about…

  • Bare root definition
  • Tree/plant selection
  • Timing of plantings
  • Hole size and planting depth
  • How to fertilize trees best
  • Water basin and watering requirements, especially in the drought
  • Critter protection (including gophers, deer, squirrels, birds, rats, raccoons, etc.)

Tom Cronin has gardened for over 25 years, and he is extensively involved in a number of local projects, such as City Trees and Incredible Edible Redwood City. To read all about his experience, visit his website, Tom’s Edible Gardens.
