With cold winters and humid summers, New England can be a tricky place to grow fruit. This talk will introduce those interested in an aesthetically pleasing and productive landscape to various fruit and nut bearing plants which have preformed well at Cricket Hill Garden’s test plantings over the last decade. Whether one’s goals are delicious chemical free home-grown fruit or simply providing fodder for wildlife, this talk will cover the what, where and how of growing both old favorites like heirloom apples as well as more unusual fruits such as pawpaw, persimmon and cornelian cherry. A plant sale will follow the lecture.
Daniel Furman is co-owner Cricket Hill Garden, a second-generation specialty nursery and forest farm, in Thomaston, CT. Since joining the business in 2010, he has worked to expand the peony production program at the nursery, as well as diversify the stock grown to include unusual landscape and forest edibles.
