Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The unique foliage, aromatic flowers, and dramatic colors of citrus add an exotic touch to the garden, terrace, deck, or balcony. The delicious and nutritious fruits they harvest are a draw to an ever-increasing number of people interested in growing their own food.

Martin Page charts the introduction of citrus to the western world, celebrates their unique flavors and diverse uses, and recommends the best varieties for garden cultivation. The detailed cultivation advice describes how to grow the trees in all climates, includes tips on overwintering, and shows how to tend to trees in pots, small gardens, and greenhouses. Includes oranges, lemons, limes, tangerines, clementines, and many more.

Growing Citrus is the definitive guide to growing the world's most important fruit crops and will inspire the enthusiastic home gardener to grow their own.
