Now, expert gardener Clare Matthews demystifies fruit growing, offering simple shortcuts, unusual low-maintenance strategies, and practical instructions. Shot by well-respected photographer Clive Nichols, The Easy Fruit Garden will appeal to the complete novice as well as to more experienced gardeners looking to save time and increase productivity.
