Growing Fruit in Northern Gardens
A comprehensive full-colour handbook for growing fruit in cold climates that is aimed at the home gardener. Includes a detailed map and reference guide to zones, hardiness, planting time, and best practices to ensure growth and survival.
From pincherries to haskaps, tree fruits to vine fruits, and everything in between, renowned horticulturalist Dr. Bob Bors and master gardener Sara Williams delve into the science of growing and maintaining fruit plants for northern gardeners.
Each specific fruit plant is given its own chapter in this beautifully designed reference guide, complete with charts and colour photographs, outlining and describing the plant and its history, planting, care, and any problems (such as insects and disease) that are typically associated with growing it. Gardeners will be able to decide which plants would work best in their own gardens, and harvest the fruits of their success.
