Grow Fruit Reviews
I rarely buy a book that costs over $5, preferring to wait until the price comes down to make it worth the purchase of it. But when I checked this book out of my library, I HAD to have it!! I have been researching growing fruit (on a small scale) for two years, and this year have planted my first fruit trees. I have read all kinds of articles and books, and this book is the one I had to get. First of all, the pictures are gorgeous! WOW - who wouldn't want to try growing all these wonderful looking fruits?!! There are tons of pictures, plus drawings, of the fruits in different stages, and many of them depicting different growing methods, and pruning (which can be scary).
Laid out beautifully, this book is orderly, jam-packed with in-depth information on all stages of growing fruit plants and trees. "Grow Fruit" has given me a full education! I have put in three peach trees, two pears, and two citrus trees in my small yard, but was woefully short on know-how until now. Buckingham has given me the handbook, and I really appreciate the hard work it would take to put together such a fine book.
AWESOME!!!! tells you when you should plant things when you should prune, harvest... it has good illustrations (pictures) and all the information i would want on an extensive amount of fruits.. i bought this along with the "grow vegetables" book and i couldnt be happier with my purchase. some of the other books i looked at just had too much information.. i dont need to read about growing flowers im only growing things i can eat..
This book is definitely a must for a beginner like me... I like all the pictures! We don't have a huge yard but are trying to grow as many fruit trees our yard can handle and I wish this book would have been able to tell me the best location for each fruit tree using a typical house and a yard drawing of some sort... Also what we can do or how we can fit as many fruit trees as possible using a small yard. How about grouping companion fruit trees so we know which tree can be close to which or rival fruit trees that we have to be careful not to plant nearby...? Overall it's a great book!
Very good book. Not the most comprehensive, but definitely useful.
If you are looking for a step by step book with TONS of pictures you found it. It does not get any better than this. The pictures are very helpful and the text is easy to understand and follow as you get started on your own orchard! It is 352 pages and covers everything a beginner to intermediate gardener could want to know.
If you want to learn how to grow fruit this book is probably the best of the best as a resource. I have been gardening for 30 years and own a lot of gardening books, and every once in a while one comes along that is well-organized, detailed, and USEFUL. This is it. I highly recommend.
I bought both the Grow Fruit and Grow Vegetable books for my dad as a gift. I think I am looking at them just as much as he is. We are both novices to growing our own food but these volumes are a great starting point. I love the pictures too. I am a visual person and need more than just text to guide me. Thumbs up!
