A reissue of Home-grown Fruit (2007). A practical and inspirational guide on how to grow your very own orchard, bramble or berry.

What could be tastier than fruit, picked straight from your back garden? Growing your own fruit can be a rewarding pastime and you don’t need a big garden or allotment to cultivate your favourite fruit, as they can grow well in containers and even hanging baskets.

This beautiful and practical guide celebrates the produce of orchards, allotments and gardens, from rhubarb, gooseberries and strawberries to peaches, damsons and plums. Each fruit entry reveals all you need to know about growing and harvesting as well as providing useful tips on companion planting and pests and diseases.

With beautiful illustrations throughout, you will find all you need for a fruitful, healthy garden all year round.
