Manchester Public Library - "Growing Fruit in Small places"

What you’ll learn:

With very little experience you’ll learn how easy it is to grow fruit agriculture (table grapes, wine grapes, apples, peaches, plums, berries, etc..) at your home.  You’ll discover you can grow fruit agriculture in even the smallest nook or cranny on your property and how rewarding a feeling it is to harvest your ever-increasing fruit bounty each and every year.  Emerson will guide you through the basics of how to design, plan, and be successful at growing fruit perennials at your home.  You can find helpful videos and guidelines at
