Gardeners focus on fruit trees
By Denise Stewart
Being successful at growing fruit trees in your own backyard is the focus of the Sept. 26 meeting of the Scripps-Mesa Garden Club. The meeting at the local library at 6 p.m. will feature Eric Hoffman who will share his techniques in correctly planting and frugally irrigating a variety of trees in his Scripps Ranch garden. Hoffman harvests abundant crops of a variety of fruits each season.
Local gardeners meet monthly at the library Community Room or at nearby gardens to share experiences and to learn from Master Gardeners. Those interested in learning more about the club, and getting acquainted with a variety of garden topics, are encouraged to check the club’s website: scrippsmesagardenclub.com.
