The Fruit Tree Handbook is a really well-organised, approachable yet thorough guide to sourcing, planting and caring for fruit trees. It's a must for anyone considering anything from a couple of trees to an orchard. --Mark Diacono - River Cottage Head Gardener
At last! A book about growing fruit with an organic approach, written for British conditions and with home fruit growers rather than professionals in mind. To my knowledge it s the first book that ticks all three boxes but, just as important, it s very good. --Patrick Whitefield - Permaculture Magazine
Présentation de l'éditeur
Apples, pears, plums, cherries, apricots, peaches and nectarines, as well as less common fruits such as mulberries, medlars and figs, are covered in detail, with recommended varieties of each.
Fruit tree expert Ben Pike describes all the pest and disease problems you may encounter and advises on how to deal with them. He explains about choosing rootstocks and suitable varieties for your needs, and illuminates the mysteries of pruning with step-by-step instructions and detailed diagrams. The book features beautiful colour pictures throughout.
The Fruit Tree Handbook conveys a deep respect for the natural world, showing how to cultivate healthy trees through good management, and also includes chapters on restoring an old orchard and setting up a community orchard.
Whether you are planting one or two trees in your garden or 50 trees in a field; or whether you need help with pruning your apple tree or advice on looking after a victoria plum tree, this book provides the expert guidance you need and you can look forward to being rewarded with basketfuls of luscious fruit at harvest time.

I don't suppose advanced orchardists will get so much from this book. I'm not one, so I wouldn't know, but I'll bet much of this knowledge is already known. However, there is a good deal of reference material provided in the Appendix.
In short, a great book for a starter like me with very clear and structured information. I expect to refer to this book for the next 20yrs. I'm not sure I will ever be so advanced to outgrow this book, but I live in hope.
