Fruit Trees for Home Gardens

Join the Chino Basin Water Conservation District at the Waterwise Community Center (4594 San Bernardino St, Montclair,) on March 16, 2019, from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. for a workshop on choosing fruit trees for your garden.

Delicious home-grown fruit – nothing beats it! But going to the local nursery and buying what catches your eye does not always lead to the desired results. This class will provide you with the information you need to get going or help refine your techniques for growing fruit at home, whether you want to plant one tree or an entire home orchard.

Participants in this class will leave understanding:

  • The best fruit tree selections and varieties for our local area, and options for where to purchase them
  • How to select the best location on your property for new plantings
  • Preparation and planting techniques
  • Techniques to keep fruit trees small, to fit more varieties into a limited space
  • Integrating fruit trees as part of your larger landscape
  • Efficient irrigation options and irrigation scheduling for fruit trees

The class is free but you must register. You can register online here.

Chino Basin Water Conservation District is a public agency whose goal is the protection of the Chino Groundwater Basin in order to guarantee that current and future water needs will be met.
