Spring Plant Sale May 12th

The Home Orchard Society has been sharing our love of backyard fruit growing for the last 40 + years.  We invite you to join in the fun and grow some fruit!  This is the first of we hope to be an Annual Spring Plant Sale.  Come out and show your support for the HOS!

What’s available? …

-dwarf and semi dwarf fruit trees (newly grafted): apple (30+ varieties!!!), European pear, Asian pear, plums, figs

-blueberries, raspberries, blackberries, thimbleberries, strawberries, lingonberries, currants, evergreen huckleberries

-plus lots of odds and ends from around the orchard

Our friends at Wild Oaks Nursery will have nice selection of PNW native plants and Permaculture Rising is joining us with lots of vegetable starts, medicinal/culinary herbs, and pollinator and wildlife friendly plants.

And what fruit lover’s festival would be complete without homemade jams and jellies????  Our friend Sarah Smith makes unique jams and jellies from some of the more unusual fruits we run across…cornelian cherry jelly and Chinese hawthorn butter are a couple of our favorites!!! Come check out some of her Smiths Home Harvest Preserves.

The Arboretum is located on the CCC campus in Oregon City.  Once on campus follow the signs to the Environmental Learning Center or the Brown parking lot, both located off Inskeep Drive near the Beavercreek entrance to campus.
