Media reviews

Delightful and entertaining. ... Acts as a basic introduction to varieties of citrus as well as a historical overview, before turning to the practical matters of soil composition, nutrition, pests, and diseases. -- Lisa Ennis Library Journal 20090301 Complete with mouth-watering illustrations throughout, the author displays the diversity of citrus that can be achieved if appropriate conditions are provided. -- Mark Poswillo Gardens Illustrated 20090401 At long last, we have a citrus book more focused on container culture in sunrooms, windowsills and greenhouses than outdoors in the ground. -- Paula Szilard Hobby Greenhouse 20090701
