The Orchard Book
Wonderlands of bounty and beauty, orchards offer an abundance of fruit in a wildlife haven full of diversity. A well-managed orchard works with nature to provide maximum harvest for minimal effort.
The diversity, history and heritage of apples and other fruit trees is fascinating, and Wade’s passion for them is infectious. Let him draw you into a world of apples and pears, cherries and plums; of ancient varieties such as quince, medlar and mulberry; and even of juicy apricots, figs and peaches.
Imagine having organic fruit all year round from your own little nature haven and use Wade’s tried-and-tested experience to create your perfect orchard.
"Why have an orchard – even in your own back garden? The why, the how and the stories to get you going from someone who’s answered the question in his own small back garden and then in a field he bought at the edge of his village. Makes orcharding seem possible even for us gardening fools. I love this book."
