|Summer Yummies - Fruits of the Summertime|
Sat, July 13 from 10-11:30 am
with Bret C. Duncan
Are you one of those people that associate Summer with succulent ripe raspberries? Maybe you frequently suffer from Blueberry belly in the month of July... and love it! If you are such a person and want the full experience in the comfort of your own garden then come see us for our Summer Yummies class on July 13th. We will discuss summer fruiting plants and how to grow them. And yes, Summer yummy samples will be provided. Free, but please pre-register at the Garden Shop or call 828-645-3937.

He has worked in the green industry for 7 years and at Reems Creek Nursery for 5 years. Bret is currently an urban homesteader in West Asheville and hopes to someday own and operate a nursery/farm of his own.
|FROM WILMA: When I think of summer fruits, my first thought is that of blackberries. Going blackberry picking was a summer ritual when I was young. We braved briars, bees, snakes, chiggers (red bugs), and rough terrain as we climbed hills to where the best berries grew. My mother and grandmother made jams/jellies and delicious cobblers. They also canned them for wintertime use and my grandmother swore by them as a remedy for stomach ailments.|
Peaches, blueberries, raspberries, and other fruits are beginning to ripen. Last week I bought early green apples from a local vendor at The Weaverville Tailgate Market. They made delicious applesauce. Many summer fruit varieties fit well into home landscapes. One fruit I enjoy growing is alpine strawberry. They can be planted from seed and I have them growing in containers where they produce enough small berries throughout the summer to add to cereal, etc. A good fruit for a child's garden!
Join Bret C. Duncan on Saturday, July 13th for a "Summer Yummies" Fruits of the Summertime class.

Garden Design Basics

This crash course on garden design will discuss the importance of soil building, design choices that emphasize choosing the right plant for the right place, what to consider regarding plant placement and home orientation, and the art of layering plants to heighten their effectiveness. Free, but please pre-register at the Reems Creek Nursery Garden Shop or call 828-645-3937.
If you visited Joel Cole’s garden during the Weaverville Garden Tour, you know he is a fabulous gardener with a delightful garden. Learn from him!
- Watering – grass and vegetables require 1” of water per week. Newly planted trees and shrubs should be watered deeply twice a week.
- Most hanging baskets should be watered 1-2 times daily during the heat of summer. Fertilize baskets on a regular basis.
- Use Weed-eaters with care, as they will damage bark and possibly kill trees, shrubs, and fruit.
- If needed, fertilize and prune shrubs by no later than July 31.
- Do not prune spring flowering shrubs now or you will cut off next year’s flowers.
- Harvest veggies frequently so they are at their most tender and delicious.
- Mulch flowerbeds and veggie gardens to prevent weeds and retain moisture.
- Buckwheat is a great summer cover crop that pollinators love too.
- Start planning your fall garden.
