Did you know that winter is great time to plant fruit trees in North Texas? Do you know what fruit trees grow best in Collin County, or how to care for them? Do you know how to plant a fruit tree? Have you dreamed of growing apples, pears, peaches, or figs in your own backyard but haven’t because you don’t know the answers to these questions?
If so, join Shades of Green for this FREE gardening clinic. Our professional staff will teach you how to succeed at growing fruit in your own yard. During this hands-on class, we’ll be planting a small orchard in our tree lot, demonstrating each step along the way.
What We’ll Cover:

The clinic is free and begins at 10 am. (If it’s pouring rain, we’ll reschedule on another day.) You’ll receive 30-45 minutes of quality instruction from our professional staff followed by an opportunity to ask questions.
