Publisher Comments:

In Fruit Trees for the Home Gardener Allan A. Swenson shows you how, step by step, to plan, plant, and enjoy your own homegrown harvest: apples, pears, peaches, nectarines, apricots, plums, cherries, and even nuts.Beginning with a careful selection of the most productive, tasty fruit varieties, Swenson will help you plan your fruit tree landscape - whether it's a full-blown orchard, or a single dwarf apple tree on your patio. You'll discover the secrets of soil improvement, planting, pruning, fertilizing, maintaining, and finally harvesting the fruits of your labors.This invaluable resource also includes methods of espalier (tree sculpture), facts about common threats that plague fruit trees and their remedies, tables for thinning fruit and spacing trees, and guidelines for freezing, canning, and making jam.An easy-to-use, wonderfully illustrated, mouth-watering guide, Fruit Trees for the Home Gardener will provide you with all the instruction and pointers you'll ever need to grow fruit trees successfully. Your garden and your table will be forever enhanced. (5 1/2 X 8 1/4, 182 pages, color photos, b&w photos, illustrations, charts)
