Product description


[A]n an excellent collection of information.... The photographs, figures, and tables are outstanding and facilitate understanding and clarify issues that would have required many additional words to achieve similar clarity.... Growing Fruit Trees was a pleasure for the mind and a joy for the eyes--a delightful work. Highly recommended. — G. S. Howell (CHOICE)

[C]omprehensive, easy to understand, and probably the best I've read so far on the subject. . . . An essential volume for designers with clients who wish to have producing fruit and nut trees in their gardens.  — Jane Berger (Garden Design Online)

If followed, there is no doubt that this book will set the reader on the right direction to producing good quality and regular crops of fruit. . . . For a horticultural student who sees fruit-growing as part of their future, then this book is excellent. For the aspiring fruiticulteur, it is a must. — The Garden

More than 300 full-color photos and drawings elegantly illustrate the technical details, making this a valuable resource for landscape designers, arborists, horticulturists, and serious gardeners. — Landscape Architecture Magazine

[E]ssential…. [E]xtraordinarily helpful…. [A] beautiful book, not only in its abundant color photographs and diagrams, but also in its approach to the care of fruit trees…. [A] lovely and useful book. — Englewood Review of Books

[P]erfect for gardeners and horticultural libraries alike. — Midwest Book Review

Tree-growers on any scale will benefit from the detailed information, attractively presented, with plenty of photos. — Reference and Research Book News
