If you have ever thought about branching out in edible gardening into the world of pome fruits, citrus, and stone fruits, but thought you didn't have the space to make it work, this is certainly the book to help you along.
Luscious peaches, crisp apples, and sweet plums right off the tree are hard to beat.
For gardeners yearning for the pleasures of home-grown fruit plucked straight from the tree, this deliciously encouraging guide cuts the subject down to size.

With inspiring ideas for spaces of all shapes and sizes and creative recipes for your incredible harvest, you'll want to plant a mini-orchard in every intimate corner.
For the gardener with space limitations, bountiful fruit trees are now within arm's reach.
