“ A horticultural fairytale, it also provides a practical roadmap to getting started – even in the increasingly tiny modern garden.” – James Wong, ethnobotanist, TV presenter, garden designer and writer “ For over 30 years I have grown ornamentals with never a thought for planting fruit trees, until now. Naomi combines a dream of yore with a challenge for the future. Count me in.” – Roy Lancaster, broadcaster, plantsman, gardener and author “ Good to see both home growing and commercial considerations covered. Well done!” – Martin Crawford, Agroforestry Research “ This delightful book takes us on a sensual stroll through the orchard landscape, conveying both the romance and the practicalities of growing fruit trees.” – Ben Pike, author of The Fruit Tree Handbook “ From scrumping, hedgerow fruits and King Henry VIII to the random seedling cider orchards of New America, this is a major contribution to pomology, offering education, history and entertainment.” – Tom Burford, author of Apples of North America: Exceptional Varieties for Growers, Gardeners and Cooks
