The University of Illinois Extension’s Home Orchard Series continues later this month. The next session is scheduled for March 21, and each session cost five dollars to attend for class materials.
Andrew Holsinger is a Horticulture Educator at the Extension. He says the upcoming sessions will cover how to establish your fruit trees and how to treats pests and disease.
Holsinger says the most common fruit trees grown in the area are apple trees. He says that apple trees, however, can be one of the most challenging to care for.
Holsinger appeared as a guest on the Newstalk WTIM Morning Show.
