So normally I save up my favorite books for a blog post at the end of the year. I’m breaking that tradition in order to tell you about this fantastic book I just finished.
It’s brilliant, people. If you’ve ever had an interest in growing fruit trees – lots of fruit trees – in your yard, but never thought you had enough room, this is the book you need.
Everything you ever learned about growing and pruning fruit trees is wrong – and everything she says makes so much sense.
Totally going to get a peach tree this year…and a cherry…and a plum…oh yeah. I love my espaliered pears and apples, but stone fruit don’t work well as espaliered trees (unless you fan-shape them, which I don’t care for, AND I’m running out of good espalier garden spots.) I’m so excited to give this a try!
