WENATCHEE — A series of day-long workshops on growing apples, pears and stone fruit will be held in North Central Washington in coming weeks.
Sponsored by Washington State University county extension offices, the workshops — or “horticultural days” — will feature sessions on growing techniques, pesticide application and management of weeds, diseases and pests.
