Description

What could be tastier than fruit, picked straight from your back garden? Growing your own fruit can be a rewarding pastime and you don't need a big garden or allotment to cultivate your favourite fruit, as they can grow well in containers and even hanging baskets. This beautiful and practical guide, marking a unique collaboration between the National Trust and Country Living magazine, celebrates the produce of orchards, allotments and gardens, from rhubarb, gooseberries and strawberries to peaches, damsons and plums. Each fruit entry reveals all you need to know about growing and harvesting as well as providing useful tips on companion planting and pests and diseases. With beautiful illustrations throughout, you will find all you need for a fruitful, healthy garden all year round.show more

About Jane Eastoe

Jane Eastoe has written many books on the subject of the outdoors, from the National Trust Book of the Countryside to the bestselling Hen Keeping. In her garden in Kent she has grown many varieties of old roses - mostly with success. Her practical experience of growing roses, combined with her love of historical research and her fashion sensibility, makes her the ideal candidate to write this refreshingly up-to-date appreciation of vintage roses.show more
