GARDEN FARMER

Fund Raising Opportunities

We support many non-profit groups and organizations in our community and throughout the state of California. These groups include 4-H, FFA, and other school organizations. We give groups an opportunity to raise money by pre-selling multi-budded cocktail trees and other species of trees by special request. This fundraiser normally runs from October through February of each year. Since trees are a seasonal and perishable commodity, the fundraisers are set up on a first come first serve basis. The first delivery of cocktail trees is available around mid-December.

GARDEN FARMER MULTI-BUDDED FRUIT TREES

The Multi-Budded Fruit Tree is like having a fruit basket growing in your backyard! When the Multi-Budded Fruit Tree was about two months old, several varieties of fruit were budded to it. These varieties include different combinations of peach, apricot, plum and nectarine. A mature Splash tree will grow a combination of peaches, apricots, nectarines and plums all on one tree. There are also Cherry, Apple, Peach and Plum Multi-Budded trees offering several varieties within its own species. Early and late ripening varieties have been selected so you can be picking fruit all season long!

EXAMPLE OF A FRUIT SPLASH TREE 
Your fruit tree will be delivered in its dormant state. Keep the roots moist. Try to plant your tree as soon as possible. Select a site that has good drainage. Dig a hole deep enough so as not to crowd the roots. Do not plant the tree deeper than when it was in the bag. Fill the hole with dirt and pack firmly to prevent air pockets from forming. Watering by soaking the tree is preferred over sprinkling.
