Fruitful Talks Will Be Held

Fruitful Talks Will Be Held

Ever notice how negotiations and diplomatic talks are often described as ‘fruitful’? And that it’s really just a polite way of saying that nothing much was accomplished?

Seedy Saturday does much better than that. Our ‘fruitful talks’ are actually full of fruit. Or at least full of helpful information about growing fruit. And what could be better than that?

At 12:15, you can hear Michael Cowan of Edibella Organic Landscapes on pruning fruit trees. He’s going to cover the basics of how a fruit tree grows, the tools to use, timing, how pruning affects fruiting, and some of the different styles of pruning.

And at 2 pm, the renowned Bob Duncan, who probably knows how to grow more kinds of fruit trees than anyone else on the islands, will speak on growing apples and pears in south coastal BC, including recommendations of the varieties most likely to produce in our conditions.

So, if you are thinking about growing tree fruit, come hear Michael and Bob. They’ll ensure that your endeavours are not fruitless.
