The Tui NZ Fruit Garden provides practical, highly illustrated information on how to grow your own fruit and nuts, whether you plan to plant a few containers on your balcony or develop a full home orchard. The Tui NZ Fruit Garden explains the five steps to successful fruit gardening: planning; preparation; planting; care and maintenance; and harvesting your produce. It includes 58 common and more exotic fruit and nuts suitable for growing in New Zealand gardens, and each entry concludes with recipe ideas for turning produce into a tasty dish. As with its companion title, The Tui NZ Vegetable Garden, the Tui NZ Fruit Garden contains a section on how to combat pests and diseases in order to build a healthy and thriving fruit garden, a garden diary and growing calendar.
