The Fruit Tree Handbook describes all the pest and disease problems you may encounter and advises on how to deal with them organically. It also reveals all you need to know about choosing rootstocks and suitable varieties for your needs, and illuminates the mysteries of pruning with step-by-step instructions and detailed diagrams.

Whether you are planting a few trees in your garden or 50 trees in a field, this book provides the expert guidance you need to look after your trees – and be rewarded with basketfuls of luscious fruit at harvest time.
