Post New to Fruit Trees - Need a Good Book
Hello,

I'd like to grow plum, apple, and cherry maybe pear trees in our yard in SW Portland and I need some education. Does anyone know of a really good book that would be helpful?

Thanks!

There are a lot of them at the library. Most of the best new ones get checked out a lot. There was a new one I liked by some French guys, The title was something like growing fruit trees. i 'm sure if you do a search you'll find it. Then you can decide which one to buy. Sunset Garden book is more of a landscaping book with some fruit. It has a lot of info though.

There is a lot of information on-line as well. Check out both the OSU Extension Service, and the WSU Extension Service. Lots of good articles,

If you show up at the Fruit Propagation Fair, there will be a lot of people to help you.

I like [The Holistic Orchard by Michael Phillips, you can find it on Amazon. It emphasizes growing fruit the natural or biological way. I like it, but yes especially if you don't want to spend money, libraries and online resources are great! :)

My favorite book is "The Backyard Orchardist: A Complete Guide to Growing Fruit Trees in the Home Garden"

I hope this helps you out. :)
