CMBG: Fruit Vines and Strawberries: What’s New?
February 25 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm
In partnership with the Maine Landscape and Nursery Association, we present the Green Spotlight Series, featuring local and national researchers, instructors, and field professionals from the green industry discussing topics valuable to peer professionals.
Vines, especially edible vines, have been designed into gardens for centuries as canopy, food, and privacy, adding contrast and dimension to any landscape setting. This presentation will discuss new and classic varieties, plus how to manage the grapes, hardy kiwis, strawberries, and hops that work well in Maine landscapes. David Handley, berry fruit specialist at Highmoor Farm, will discuss what’s available and appropriate for different applications and review growth habits, flowering times, colors, and what varieties will provide fruit through much of the season.
The variety of topics in Green Spotlight Series is geared to a diverse range of landscape-related professionals from nursery and lawn-care specialists to arborists, landscapers, gardeners, and landscape designers/architects. MELNA members are eligible for the CMBG member price and will earn recertification credits and several sessions will count toward the State of Maine’s Pesticide License recertification.
