Nothing beats home-grown fruit: whether crispy apples, succulent plums and cherries, or juicy berries and currants. Endorsed by experts at the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, The Kew Gardener's Guide to Growing Fruit is a comprehensive handbook, packed with useful advice on growing, pruning, harvesting and propagating every crop from mature apple trees to strawberry hanging baskets. For each of the seventy-five fruits and nuts described, there is a list of the best garden varieties, and twelve exciting projects show new ways to display and use your crops.
