Bob Duncan will be talking about “Growing Citrus & Sub-tropical Fruit Trees in South Coastal BC”. Bob trained as a Botanist and Entomologist, and worked for the Canadian Forestry Service as an Entomologist for over 35 years. Together with his wife Verna, they operate a specialty plant nursery and demonstration orchard near Sidney, British Columbia, which specializes in temperate, warm temperate, citrus, Mediterranean and hardy subtropical fruit trees.

With over 45 years experience growing tree fruits on Vancouver Island, their Fruit Trees and More demonstration orchard includes many varieties of tree fruits including a large selection of citrus and subtropicals. Other types of fruit trees grown include apples, pears, plums, peaches, apricots, nectarines, cherries, quince, medlar, kiwis, pineapple guavas, figs, pomegranates, loquats, persimmons, olives, jujube, avocado, pawpaw, and white sapote. The orchard is used as a teaching tool to demonstrate various training systems and cultural techniques for growing fruit trees.

Please join us in learning how we too can grow citrus and other subtropical fruit trees in the Comox Valley!
