Lecture on growing Apricots in colder climates

Anyone interested in how to grow Apricots in zones 4 & 5 might be interested in attending a lecture on that topic by a Master Gardener named Robert Purvis. He now works for the USDA as an agricultural statistician. He has a 243 tree hobby orchard, he maintains at his home in Yakima and is currently concentrating on 7 apricot varieties for zone 4 hardy types. The lecture is being held at the Chicago Botanic Garden, just north of the City of Chicago, on Sunday, February 22, 2004, at 1:30 PM. Admission to the lecture is free, but there is a charge for parking. Members of the Chicago Botanic Garden or the Morton Arboretum can park for free. The event is being sponsored be the Midwest Fruit Explorers (MidFex). MidFex is asking people to contact them in advance, so they can arrange for the proper amount of seating space. They will also answer any specific questions you may have. Send confirmations and queries to: snipped-for-privacy@comcast.net
