Growing Urban Orchards
How to Care for Fruit Trees in the City and Beyond
By Susan Poizner
You’d think growing fruit trees would be easy. You just plant them, water the, and wait for the harvest, right? Well, that’s not quite the case. Fruit trees are delicate and need hands-on care, especially when planted in the challenging Urban environment.
In this book, community orchardist Susan Poizner teaches you everything you need to know to grow fruit trees, from choosing the right tree to pruning, feeding and protecting your tree from pests and diseases.
