What the critics say

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book which explains both soft and top fruit growing in the simplest of terms. Many gardeners think that fruit growing in the allottment or garden can be difficult which it most certainly is not - particularly where pruning is concerned. In this book Val has managed to turn a sometimes daunting subject into one that is eminently enjoyable. I recommend this book to everyone who would like to grow fruit in their allotment or garden
- Gerry Edwards, organic Fruit Grower and Chairman of the RHS Fruit Committee
