Growing fruit trees and shrubs is more popular than ever, especially among millennials and young families. Fruit beds, urban orchards and forest gardens are now part of the landscape of many cities in North America. Contrary to popular belief that fruit plants require a lot of care, you will learn during this lecture that several species of fruit trees and shrubs are easy to grow, resistant to insects and diseases, and perfectly hardy in our northern latitudes. Some cultivars of haskap, strawberry and raspberry can be grown in containers on balconies, terraces or rooftops. It is even possible to grow figs in our climate!
