Growing Fruit

Nearly every gardener has grown a vegetable or two, but what about fruit? Homegrown berries, apples, peaches, and more can be yours for the tasting, and it's easier than you might think. While some fruits can be grown from seed, most are available either as bare-root, balled-and-burlapped, or container-grown plants; our guides show you the differences. Strawberries are one of the more popular grow-at-home fruits, and you can plant them in a variety of ways. Learn hints for planting in your backyard, as well as ideas for growing a strawberry garden in a jar. Apples, raspberries, cherries, peaches, and blueberries are popular with home gardeners, too; learn the secrets that enable you to maximize your fruit tree and berry harvests with our tips. More unusual crops can also be a part of your yard. In warmer climates, citrus trees and subtropical fruits may have a place in the landscape; if you experience colder weather, learn how to grow that same fruit in containers. In fact, nearly any fruit can be grown in a container; learn how with advice on using pots for fruit-filled harvests.
