Raspberries in Vermont? And apricots and plums? Hill, a nursery operator and successful backyard gardener, believes fruit trees and berry plants, properly selected for growing zone and landscape conditions, require no more care than other growing things. His recommendations, especially suitable for beginners, are leavened by anecdotes from personal experience, including the surprise appearance of a partridge in his pear tree. He takes a middle course in the fertilizer and spray controversy, comparing the use of chemicals to penicillin - essential for double pneumonia but not for the common cold. Helpful in sorting out disease-resistant strains, identifying frequent pests, and choosing the most appropriate variety of each kind of fruit, this supplies basic information and tips on preserving as well.
