Backyard Fruit Production

— Written By Silas Brown and last updated by

Do you hope for that opportunity of walking out in the back yard and picking home grown fruit from your own plants? Many have had difficulty battling insect and disease  or even unknown problems with fruit plants. Even with enormous disease and insect pressure on plants in our area you can still have home grown fruit. Clay County Extension will hold a Backyard Fruit Production seminar on Tuesday, March 22, (12:00-1:30; or 5:30-7:00).

This class will provide information on variety selection, soil fertility, disease and insect management for tree and small fruits that are suitable for Clay County. This learning opportunity will provide you with the knowledge to grow your own fruit and will be held at Extension’s new location (former Clay County Health Dept. below Moss Memorial Library). In order to help us provide sufficient material for all participants, please pre-register by contacting our office at 389-6305 or by email (julie_lyvers@ncsu.edu).
