Written by the long-time manager of the renowned Alan Chadwick Garden at the University of California, Santa Cruz, this substantial, authoritative, and beautiful full-color guide covers everything you need to know about organically growing happy, healthy fruit trees. You haven't truly experienced flavor until you've eaten fruit fresh out of hand in your own garden. You want perfectly crisp apples? Sweet, juicy pears? Or how about varieties that can never be found in the store? For more than 40 years, Orin Martin has taught thousands of students, apprentices, and gardeners the art and craft of growing fruit trees. In Fruit Trees for Every Garden, he shares-with wisdom and humor-his recommended fruit varieties and the keys to selecting, planting, growing, and tending productive trees, including apple, pear, peach, plum, apricot, nectarine, cherry, orange, lemon, fig, and more. Orin covers ideal tree placement, soil, compost, cover crops, fertilizer, watering, pruning, pests and disease, increasing biodiversity, and much more, all paired with clear illustrations, full-color photography, and evocative intaglio etchings by artist Stephanie Martin for a striking yet practical guide that you will both treasure and turn to for years to come.
