What Fruit Can You Grow in Your Backyard

Ask about temperatures when planting in light of the National Weather Service frost advisory.

Now that you are thinking about saving your sensitive outdoor plants because of a frost advisory, perhaps you are thinking about what else you can grow in your backyard. Tonight would be a good time to learn all about what fruits grow well in Georgia.
You are in luck. A class on growing fruit in Georgia is being hosted at 7 p.m. today at the Alpharetta Engineering/Public Works Department, 1790 Hembree Road, Alpharetta.
Learn about what grows well, even in small backyards. Ask about the frost advisories to be sure, but this usually is the best time of year to plant. This class will cover fruit trees (apple, peach, cherry, pear, fig), brambles (raspberry, blackberry), blueberries, strawberries, and grapes, along with selection, planting, pruning, disease and pest control, and harvesting.
This class is run by the Fulton County Cooperative Extension, North Fulton Master Gardeners and the Alpharetta Natural Resources Commission. To register, call (678) 297-6200.
