Blueberry Gardens - A 4 hour Indoor/outdoor workshop.

Blueberries are among the most popular fruits to grow in the home garden.  They are healthful and well suited to grow in our New England conditions, come learn the basics for growing blueberries in your home landscape.   Workshop covers site and soil requirements, planting recommendations, cultural practices, variety and selection, key pests and their management, pruning, and questions.  Then, outside we will put some of that into practice getting hands-on experience pruning mature bushes at nearby Tree-Berry Farm.  Bring your own or use our pruners.  Speaker, Sonia Schloemann, will remain available via email for attendees to ask questions if something isn't clear once the program is over.  Participants are invited to a BYO lunch between the classroom and practical sessions.
