About this book

Fruits, berries, and nuts are an exciting way for food gardeners to expand their home-grown harvest with new produce. "The Fruit Gardener's Bible" is the complete reference on every aspect of planting, growing, caring for, and harvesting these nutritious, delicious plants. Organic fruits and berries are expensive to buy, making it especially worthwhile to grow them in the home garden. From small fruits like strawberries, raspberries, and blueberries to orchard fruits, such as apples, pears, peaches, cherries, and nuts, backyard gardeners will learn how to choose the best varieties and methods for a healthy harvest. "The Fruit Gardener's Bible" focuses on what's practical and achievable for small-scale growing and introduces readers to the best organic, no-spray methods. From pruning to harvesting and protecting from wildlife, food gardeners will find all the information they need to incorporate fruits and berries into their existing beds and yards.
