Another down-to-earth, practical gardening guide from best-selling author Andrew Steens - a companion volume to Grow it Yourself Vegetables. Packed with sound advice and information, Andrew Steens and his new book, Grow it Yourself Fruit & Nuts are your first port of call when planting a new orchard, or looking for guidance on how to care for your fruit crops. With space-saving new dwarf varieties for today's smaller gardens and multi-grafted trees that are more resistant to pests and diseases now available, growing fruit in the home garden is becoming increasingly popular.
Andrew Steens has had a long and distinguished career in horticulture, working across the landscaping, fruit, vegetable and flower industries in management, production, education, consultancy and marketing - as well as being a keen gardener with a half-acre property at Point Wells, north of Auckland.
