Fruit Trees in January

Here is a short, and dare I say sweet, blog post from our Errol McKoy Greenhouse Manager:

January is a great time to plant fruit trees. The trees are dormant, which is good for planting, and the garden centers usually have their best selection of the year. Here are a few links to articles that I wrote throughout the past couple of years about fruit tree growing:

In these articles, I talk about the basics of fruit tree growing, the best varieties for this area, and even about growing fruit in containers.

It’s going to be a big and busy year at the Errol McKoy Greenhouse on the Midway and at the Big Tex Urban Farm. I can’t wait to share my tips and adventures with you. I’ll be back with more for you soon.  Until then, happy gardening!
