A Worthwhile Investment
Add fruit trees or bushes to your urban garden to create a beautiful living fence, experiment with hard-to-find varieties, and enjoy incredibly fresh and delicious fruit from early summer through late fall.
Perennial fruit trees and bushes are a long-term investment. On average, it will take trees 3-4 years after planting to begin producing, and bushes 2 years. Perennial fruit will reach full production capacity a few years after this.
Fruit beds measure 4’x8’x11”. Blueberries, raspberries, blackberries and strawberries are ideal to grow in theses. We install 5’ high wire trellising for brambles, along with in-bed drip irrigation lines and GCG’s custom-blended organic soil to maximize fruit production.

Fruit needs six main things to stay healthy: light, fertilization, water, a pest and disease prevention plan, harvesting, and pruning. Our horticultural specialists are well-equipped to meet the special considerations fruit requires.
Most local nurseries stock fruit trees in the early spring, and have good availability throughout the next few months. Availability drops drastically in July, however, so it is best to order by May 1st to ensure full selection.
