The Cherry Fruit Day for 2016 has been canceled. We are offering the Kiwi Pruning workshop in its place.

Saturday, July 16th
10:30 am
at 16650 State Route 536, Mount Vernon

Bob Glanzman, also known as Kiwibob, will be demonstrating the summer pruning of hardy kiwis, and also talking about growing figs here in the PNW in the Fruit Garden on Saturday, July 16th, beginning at 10:30 am at 16650 State Route 536, Mount Vernon,.

Following Bob’s workshop we will be sampling some fruit in the Garden, and then Bill Davis will demonstrate summer pruning of apple trees, followed by a demonstration of bud grafting.

In preparation for the coming workshop on kiwi pruning, please check your kiwis for AYLS, a condition or disease which causes yellow blotches on leaves. See Kiwibob’s AYLS web page for more information and photos.
