Soft fruit, tree fruit, nuts and other fruit are all covered. The author explains simple short cuts, suggests unusual low maintenance strategies, and promotes a relaxed, robust attitude to growing-your-own that really works.The beautiful photographs are by the acclaimed garden photographer Clive Nichols in Clare Matthews' own weekend fruit garden, where the principles promoted in this book have been tried, tested and proven.
