The Backyard Berry Book
A Hands-on Guide to Gardening Berries, Brambles, & Vine Fruit in the Home Garden
"...packed with reliable methods and details of berry growing one seldom encounters in books twice this one's size. Otto provides such a thorough guide to the all-important first step of preparing a site for berries, that it actually can serve as priority reading in starting any kind of gardening."
—Gene Logsdon, Author of The Contrary Farmer and over a dozen other books
Here's hands-on advice from a professional horticulturist and experienced fruit grower to help gardeners create an edible landscape. The Backyard Berry Book provided all the information that backyard gardeners need to grow strawberries, rhubarb, raspberries, blackberries, blueberries, lingonberries, currants, gooseberries, grapes, and kiwi fruit. Includes details on soil nutrition and testing; disease, pest, weed, and bird control; and trellis design. A trouble-shooting section and Seasonal Activity Calendar will help ensure success.
