Adewale Grillo rated it it was amazing Orchardost 23, Those with limited space will learn about growing dwarf fruit trees in containers. A good book if you are just starting to learn but not comprehensive.
Lot’s of great info on planting “compact orchards” or the most possible fruit in the smallest spaces imaginable!! I also would have done a better job setting my trees up for production by properly pruning those first few years of growth.
This seems like a very good resource and it was well worth reading. I am going to check on some of these things elsewhere with newer resources but I am sure that Orchardost learned a good bit from this book all the same.
That answer will be my rating of this book. I highly recommend this book for an home gardeners, who orchardost or plan to add fruit trees to their property. This was very helpful as I was planning my little home orchard.
