The Fruitful Garden

If it's a blasted heath or a sunny cliff top, an urban pocket handkerchief or just a tiny patio, whatever the size and site of your garden there's a fruit that will love growing there. Join Sally Cunningham for a tour of the possibilities of fruit growing for any site, including apples, pears, plums, figs, apricots, grapes and soft fruits. Find out how to assess your site for rainfall, exposure, frost pockets, pollination groups, soil characteristics and pH. You'll look at growing fruit in a controlled form, in pots or confined spaces and learn about prolonging your season by choice of site and fruit variety. There’ll be ideas for harvesting and storage plus ways to combat common pests and diseases for a very fruit-filled garden next year.
