On Growing a Greener World, we often celebrate the fact that vegetable gardening has become more popular over the years. Many people just like us garden to get the best and freshest flavors, to keep it local, and to have more control over how our food is grown. For those very same reasons, we should grow more fruit.
On this episode of Growing a Greener World, Joe takes us to the GGW garden to show us just how easy it is to include fruits for this growing season.
With the help of Melinda Myers, a horticulturalist & certified arborist, Joe plants a variety of fruits around the garden, from fig trees to raspberry plants. He gives you some important tips on how to keep your fruit plants, trees, and bushes, producing throughout the season.
Next, Joe shows us how to plant fruit trees that he purchased through mail order, from inspecting the packaging to make sure the trees were sent correctly to planting the trees in the ground. Joe and Melinda show you how easy it is to get started.
