Growing fruit at home is a delicious and altogether more enjoyable alternative to buying it in the shops. Mark Diacono offers a practical and accessible guide to making the most of your garden and what it has to offer.
The key to growing fruit trees and plants successfully is knowing which varieties will thrive in your own particular garden. In the first part of the book, Mark gives straightforward guidelines on techniques like pruning and training, as well as the best time of year to plant and how to deal with problems or pests.
The second part is devoted to the different varieties of fruit, with old favourites like apples, cherries, plums, blackcurrants, white currants, redcurrants, strawberries, blueberries, gooseberries, raspberries and rhubarb as well as more exotic species, including figs, grapes, cranberries, Japanese wine berries and apricots.
Introduced by Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall and with 30 delicious recipes, full-colour photographs and a directory of useful addresses, this is the ideal reference for any aspiring fruit grower.
