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 home gardeners the art and craft of growing fruit trees organically. In Fruit Trees for Every Garden, he shares--with homespun wisdom and humor--the keys to selecting, planting, growing, and tending healthy, productive trees, whether you're growing one fruit tree or one hundred. Even better, he explains the why behind the how, breaking down the science into bite-sized and digestible morsels that lead to happier, healthier trees. Orin covers ideal placement, soil, compost, cover crops, fertilizer, water, winter and summer pruning, pests and diseases, and much more in his uniquely down-to-earth, approachable style, all paired with clear illustrations, full-color photography, and evocative intaglio etchings by artist Stephanie Martin for a beautifully packaged yet practical guide that you will both treasure and turn to for years to come.
