Smaller Is Better

Imagine a peach tree that's the same height as you. And an apple tree that doesn't require a ladder for reaching the top-most fruit. Following Ann Ralph's timed pruning plan and simple maintenance guidelines, you can keep ordinary fruit trees small and manageable. Your little trees need less garden space, are easier to care for, and offer just the right amount of fruit for most households.

Synopsis:

Grow your own apples, plums, cherries, and peaches in even the smallest backyard! Expert pruner Ann Ralph reveals a simple yet revolutionary secret that keeps an ordinary fruit tree much smaller than normal. These great little trees take up less space, require less care, offer easy harvest, and make a fruitful addition to any home landscape.
