Citrus in the Brooke – March 20

facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmailby feather

Drive down a street in most Arizona towns, including the big cities, and, you will see them peeking out of the backyards, when not brazenly waving at the passing traffic, right in front of the house or apartment building.

They are colorful, well-shaped, succulent darlings that can make one sigh with involuntary envy. They are the citrus trees, that everyone seems to know, instinctively, how to grow and make thrive. Everyone but you? If that’s how it seems to you, there is good news on the horizon, and, your dreams of growing your own citrus trees are about to come to fruition.

On Thursday, March 20, starting at 1 p.m., SaddleBrooke Master Gardener Kathie Griffin will be giving a garden talk, discussing citrus at Mt View Ballroom East, for the Community Lecture Gardener Series, “Citrus in the Brooke”.

Topics that will be discussed are what to look for when purchasing citrus, how to plant, water requirements, varieties, pests and diseases, and, frost protection. Gardeners will be available, both before and after the program, to answer questions on gardening.

Contact Kathie Griffin at 520-818-6744 or kagriffi1946@yahoo.com for more information on this upcoming program.
