Citrus Trees for your Patio and Landscape
May 27, 2017 @ 10:30 am - 12:00 pm$39
In San Antonio you can successfully grow bountiful citrus from trees planted in your landscape or in containers. The trick is to select varieties that do well in our area and protect them from the occasional freezes that we get. Lean how to be successful with citrus at this free Earth-Kind Seminar presented by David Rodriguez, Extension Horticulturist for Texas A&M AgriLIFE Extension Service. Bring a notebook.
Earth-Kind combines organic and traditional principles that help homeowners create lush yet environmentally safe gardens and landscapes. They are research-proven techniques that are successful and preserve and protect the environment. Techniques include using composting to improve existing soil conditions, proper mowing, effective irrigation methods that conserve water and using plant materials that are less susceptible to insects and diseases, Perez said. Topics include an Earth-Kind overview, Earth-Kind roses, improving existing soils, Earth-Kind turf management, selecting plants for South Texas, disease and insect management, and a question and answer session.
