Plants I’ve Killed in El Cerrito: My Experience with Temperate and
Gopher Gulch Garden
Noon to 3:00 PM (Pot Luck Noon till 1:00 PM)
"Many things I've tried to grow over the years in my warm winter/cool summer climate have succumbed to my brown thumb. Plenty of others frequently fail to fruit in the fog, or produce fruit inferior to that grown in warmer regions. On the other hand, some species are remarkably well adapted here, and have thrived under my regime of 'lazy cultivation'. I will share mistakes made and lessons learned with a wide range of fruits, including cultivars best suited to my microclimate. We will talk about cherimoyas, stone fruit, passion fruit, mulberries, white sapotes, pome fruit, citrus, and many other fruits, from the common to the exotic."
There will be time after Tom’s talk for a brief discussion of these same fruits in hotter climates. Bring your experiences to share.
There will be an optional tour at Lila Skye’s beforehand, please see the newsletter for details and directions.
This event is free and open to the public.
You do not need to be a CRFG member to attend although of course we hope you'll join.
