About this book

Growing fruit in the garden has never been so popular - or so easy. This book takes a fresh look at many of the established favorites and the new varieties now available and offers practical guidance to achieving top-quality results. Everything from selection, preparation and planting to pollination, pest control and harvesting is covered, and full details are included on the most popular fruits - apples, pears, plums and cherries - and on less commonly cultivated kinds, such as nectarines and figs. There is even a section of growing fruit in greenhouses.
