Trees & Shrubs at Reilly's Garden Center
Trees & Shrubs 2013
Trees & Shrubs Department
This year we are continuing to focus on rare and unusual fruit trees and berry bushes, adding several new fruit tree varieties and Honeyberries to our inventory. We will also be growing the Chinese 'Superfruit', the Goji berry this year. This amazing source of antioxidants is reported to also boost the immune system, normalize blood pressure, improve skin tone, and even prevent cancer! Goji berries produce loads of tasty, bright red fruit from summer to fall making them a wonderful addition to the home orchard.
We are also adding more diminutive trees for smaller spaces like the 'Ruby Falls' Redbud and a tree form of 'Diablo' Ninebark. Other new additions include new and improved varieties of existing plants like hydrangeas, butterfly bushes, and several new David Austin Roses.
Events & Seminars.
1. Saturday, April 13th: 9:30
How to: Basic Guidance for the Beginning Gardener. The right shrubs for year round color. Most shrubs bloom only for a short time during the year so choosing the right combination for year round color in the landscape can be challenging, but not by any means impossible. Flowers, foliage, and texture all add new and exciting dimensions to the landscape. Stop in and let us show you how it’s done.
2. Sunday, June 16th: 10:30
Planning a small scale Family Orchard and Berry Patch. How to successfully grow and maintain fruit trees and berry bushes. Nothing is more rewarding than going outside and harvesting fresh off the tree fruit and berries out of the garden. The only way to appreciate how fruit is supposed to taste is when it has been picked when fully ripe and eaten when it is still at ‘field temperature’, a luxury most will never know. Let us show you how to go about choosing, planting, and caring for fruit trees and berry bushes and start experiencing the rewards for yourself.
