Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Anyone interested in simply growing fruit in the backyard or running a large commercial orchard, will find Traditional Orcharding an invaluable handbook. Originally published in 1914 as a textbook for students of agriculture, this authoritative guide contains valuable advice, from choosing the heaviest yielding varieties to pruning for maximum productivity. Along with over one hundred and fifty practical and historical illustrations, Sears has discarded inadequate methods for maintaining fruit trees and included only those that have stood the test of time. Traditional Orcharding is an essential guide for both the hobbyist and the expert grower, and a classic in the field.
