Zoom Class: Best Blueberries Ever!

  • Tuesday, February 22, 2022, 6:00 PM - 7:30 PM

Best Blueberry Year Ever! Lots of home growers struggle with blueberries, but with proper care, you'll get bountiful harvests. Join Cornell Small Fruits Specialist Anya Osatuke who will guide you through making sure your blueberries get the late winter pruning they need for summer production. 

The Tuesday evening Zoom class will guide you through testing, prepping and amending soil, choosing the right varieties for your needs, pruning techniques to maximize plant health and fruit production, and treating common problems that can arise during the growing season. REgister for that class by following the link at the bottom of this page.

The Saturday workshop will give you the hands-on experience to prune your blueberries with confidence. Visit: http://ccetompkins.org/events/2022/02/26/best-blueberries-ever-in-person-workshop to find out more about and register for the Saturday IN-PERSON workshop.

Join for one or both classes. You do not need to attend the zoom class to attend the workshop and vice-versa.
