In this award-winning* book, community orchardist Susan Poizner teaches you everything you need to know to grow fruit trees in the city, from choosing the right tree to pruning, feeding and protecting your tree from pests and disease.

Thinking of planting a fruit tree? This book will save you time and money and allow you to grow fruit trees successfully, right from the start.
