Another down-to-earth, practical gardening guide from best-selling author Andrew Steens - a companion volume to Grow it Yourself Vegetables. Packed with sound advice and information, Andrew Steens and his new book, Grow it Yourself Fruit Nuts are your first port of call when planting a new orchard, or looking for guidance on how to care for your fruit crops. With space-saving new dwarf varieties for today's smaller gardens and multi-grafted trees that are more resistant to pests and diseases now available, growing fruit in the home garden is becoming increasingly popular.
