Discovering Fruit and Nuts by Susanna Lyle
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


An easy-to-read, comprehensive guide to fruit and nut plants that explores old favourites as well as many little-known yet exciting food-producing plants. As well as the A to Z guide to over 220 species, and lists of the most popular cultivars, a general introduction gives a basic background to various aspects of horticulture and plant nutrition. A table of plants for different garden situations at the back of the book is a useful ready-reference. This incredibly thorough and extensively researched book is a vital reference, with everything a gardener needs to know and much that a commercial producer would find valuable in terms of choice of varieties and marketing of the harvest. In preparation: DISCOVERING VEGETABLES AND SEEDS - a companion volume that will make these two books the ultimate reference work on gardening with edible plants.
