Well written practical advice for growing fruit trees. The emphasis is on pruning and what looks like very extreme pruning but with a great deal of explanation and very good illustrations.

This is a great little book on fruit trees.

The pruning secret she gives the reader really works. That initial cut at knee height is the secret to keeping your fruit trees small and manageable.
Wonderful information.

Thanks Ann.
