One of our members suggested we offer periodic self-help growing clinics at our meetings. We have members with decades of practical experience that can benefit all. Even though we bring in outside speakers, sometimes it is helpful to get together more informally and share our experiences, successes and failures, fertilizers, pollination, bugs, pruning, varieties, etc. Last month we focused on figs, banana, mango, and jaboticaba, along with suggested fertilizers for different seasons and plants. This month the clinic continues with more on how to best grow your favorite tropical fruit trees.
Thanks to Bobbi Spencer for organizing our tasting table at the St. Lucie County Master Gardener Plant sale Saturday, May 14. Everything in the display (and more) grows here in the Treasure Coast.
