About this book:

Orchards are one of the oldest and most beautiful types of garden. Forget large commercial orchards and, instead, think of sitting in the gentle shade of a graceful tree and eating a perfect piece of fruit. You do not need a lot of space to achieve this; you don’t even need much skill.

Just a desire for really good fruit and a love of beautiful gardens and trees. Whether you fantasise about having a whole orchard, just a cherry tree in a pot, or even the perfect apple pie, Orchard provides all the information, inspiration and encouragement you need. From versatile apples, popular pears, beautiful cherries and cultivated plums to rare quinces, ancient medlars and wise mulberries, Orchard caters for the fruit farmer, amateur cook and natural historian.

As well as sharing essential cultivation advice and delicious recipes, this comprehensive guide also explores the rich traditions of fruit growing alongside the charming histories of your favourite fruits. Whether you have a tiny balcony or a huge field, it’s never been easier to grow and cook orchard fruits.
