Crisp apples, tart lemons, lush figs, tender peaches—imagine the bounty of a late-summer farmer’s market, right in your backyard! Learning how to plant and care for fruit trees is a desirable, accessible activity for a wide range of people. It’s a natural extension of many gardeners’ repertoires, and the investment yields generations of results. Growing your own fruit ensures a fresh, delicious, abundant harvest for your family and friends for years to come. Fruit trees diversify a region’s agricultural landscape and ecosystems, attracting pollinating bees, songbirds, and other desirable visitors. And cultivating orchards on your own decreases your reliance on grocery store distribution channels and boosts sustainability.

Inside The Home Orchard Handbook, you'll find:

—Strategies for choosing your orchard's site, taking into consideration soil quality, sun exposure, microclimates, drainage, and more

—Information on plant selection, including what types of fruit trees do well in certain areas and how to decipher critical concepts such as "chill hours," "cultivars," "bareroot," and "cross-pollination"

—Tips on aftercare, including in-depth watering, composting, and preventative care schedules to keep your backyard orchard fruitful for years

—Advice on troubleshooting diseases, conditions, and non-beneficial insects using only humane, organic remedies

Start growing your own fruit trees wherever you are with The Home Orchard Handbook!

Great but not if you are in the UK

I read the blurb and all I could think of was pies! We have a new house with a selection of fruit trees and all I could think of was how to ensure a good harvest. I was a little too zealous. It is a very good book, but American, so anyone in the UK looking at this should take into consideration that some of the varieties of fruit covered in this book, and diseases that affect them, are different to what you might find in the UK.
