A sprinkle or two did not discourage 20 people from bringing their citrus to the citrus collection day held at the Garden of the Sun. Nineteen hundred pounds of citrus was collected for the food bank. Despite the threat of rain the All About Citrus class was held. Master Gardeners were on hand to help you solve your citrus problems. If you have a problem and you were not able to attend you can call the Master Gardener Helpline (559) 456-7563, Monday through Friday 9am till noon.
There will be another opportunity to drop off citrus Saturday, March 13 at the Garden of the Sun. Master Gardeners will also be hosting a class Planting Summer Vegetables that day. Learn the secrets of good soil preparation, plant selection and care. The class is FREE. Garden of the Sun is located 1944 N Winery, Fresno. See the attached GOS Map for directions.
