If you are growing fruit for the first time, have inherited an orchard on your property, or looking to expand your fruit harvest, this book is seriously the go-to companion you will keep going back to. We have a whole bookshelf of wonderful Australian reference books. Some are very specific, and not just a bit daunting, but a few really stand out. This is amongst our favourite handful. Written by Alan Buckingham, this has been adapted by Jennifer Wilkinson for the Australian context.

‘Grow Fruit’ by Alan Buckingham

It breaks my heart to say that this Australian Edition is entirely out of print, and though you can still find his British version around, this one has all the seasonal and climatic knowledge that will suit us here.

If you are super keen for the Aussie edition, we do have a few loved ‘hen’s teeth’ copies of it, available to purchase directly from us. Find HERE, or come take a look in person in the Garden Shop. you happen to see a copy out in the wilds with this cover picture, then snap it up!

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Essential

Please do consider the irony of cutting down a tree for paper to make a book about trees – and perhaps buy a new book in print if you feel it will stay with you for a long time or can be shared with someone else after you. Buying books second hand is a great way to make the most of resources that someone else has finished with.
Many of our loved books were loved before.
