But there is a lot of activity that goes on in vegetable production between laying and removal of plastic.

Peach and apple trees at the Master Gardener Demonstration Garden site will be used to discuss rootstocks for fruit trees, pruning and tree training, and wildlife and pest control for fruit trees. Apple trees on dwarfing rootstocks trained to a trellis along with peach trees that have been minimally pruned will serve as examples of trees typically found in home orchards. Trees have not been sprayed with pesticides, so there are many examples of insect and disease damage that are commonly observed on fruit trees in Pennsylvania. Attendees are free to ask questions related to any topic related to growing tree fruit.
