2017 UCCE Master Gardeners of Amador County's October Classes
10/14 Small Backyard Orchards
Yes, it is only October. But, before you know it, the season for planting bare-root fruit trees will be here. Start planning now and it will pay off in the years to come. Some questions you may be asking yourself . . . Where should I plant my fruit trees? What types grow well here? What varieties taste best? Does the soil need any special preparation? Do I need a male and a female plant? When and how do I prune? When do I fertilize and what do I use? In addition to the traditional fruit trees grown in the foothills, some citrus may be appropriate for your property. If you have an interest in starting an orchard or already have one, this class is for you. Hand-outs will be available.
The class is free and open to the public. Reservations are not required. Classes are held in the GSA building at 12200-B Airport Road in Jackson - 9am - Noon.
10/28 Majestic Trees of the Foothills
Many foothill residents are lucky to have beautiful trees on their property, but are unsure about how to properly care for these towering treasures. Our local oaks, pines and cedars as well as other native trees respond very well to a little TLC and can often use some help to insure their survival under stressful conditions. The UCCE Master Gardeners of Amador County will provide useful, timely information on selection, planting and care of larger, landscape trees at their class,” Majestic Trees of the Foothills” on October 28, 2017 from 9am-Noon. Hand-outs will be available.
The class is free and open to the public. Reservations are not required. Classes are held in the GSA building at 12200-B Airport Road in Jackson.
