Sonoma Master Gardeners are offering a free workshop on caring for fruit trees at the Sonoma Valley Library at 10:30 a.m. on Saturday, Feb. 9.

The workshop, led by Sonoma gardener Steve Ehrmann, will discuss how and when to prune, rootstock issues, the value of mulch and drip irrigation.

Fruit tree afflictions and soil considerations will also be discussed.

“It is never to early to be thinking about maintaining your fruit trees, and Steve has over 15 years of experience growing and grafting fruit trees in Sonoma County and is a wealth of information,” said workshop organizer Sandy Sands.

The library is located at 755 W. Napa St.
