Greenside up host Richard Hentschel finishes up a four part set of shows talking about home orchards. Site, soil and air drainage are considerations, training the fruit tree starting the first year and the development of the proper scaffolds to support the fruit load, monitoring young trees for insects and diseases, dormant and season long cover sprays for producing trees. Reading the spray label is very important to be sure the product will control the correct pests and understand the spray intervals.
Green Side Up is a weekly gardening program produced by University of Illinois Extension. It is hosted by Richard Hentschel, Extension Educator, Horticulture.
