OSU Winter Dreams Garden Symposium

OSU Winter Dreams Garden Symposium

check out the large variety of classes this symposium offers including:

‘How To Train And Grow Espaliered Fruit Trees’

Joey Sparks will discuss the theory, practicality, and purpose of espaliered fruit trees. Lean how to grow fruit trees in less space without losing production. Espaliered Fruit trees are ornamental and can be used in landscape and garden design as well.  In addition, we will discuss other unique ways to train and grow fruit trees such as planting three varieties in one hole. 

 ‘Dry Shade Plants’ 

One of the most challenging gardening conditions is dry shade.  Extensive root competition and canopy coverage from large, established trees is often the culprit, but urban settings with too many moisture robbing impermeable surfaces, or covered locations that cannot benefit from natural precipitation can often be to blame as well.  No matter the cause, dry shade can thwart even the most experienced gardeners.  Join Bonni Criswell in discussing tactics to encourage more successful growth and the plants best suited to these difficult sites.
