   Also good for larger trees in larger spaces.
There are many enthusiastic reviews of this book, Grow a Little Fruit Tree Simple Pruning Techniques for Small Spaces. I bought this book for my wife as a present and found it useful. It is also very viewable, in a good size and good quality paper, Mr. D'Antonio said. I thought it was quite worthwhile, Mr. Dhaliwal said.

   This is terrific for the home gardener
The vast majority of gardening advice is based on large-scale agricultural methods. This is terrific for the home gardener, especially those with little or no space, Raymond said. Practical sound advice, discussion, and method descriptions of common household problems without the formality of encyclopedic tomes. Community and school gardeners also benefit from this book.

   Wonderful "how to" book
The book is a simple introduction to pruning, but it has all the necessary tools to help. Also gives reasons for the differences between parsnips and turnips, and for the varieties of root stock used in making them. Easy to use, very helpful.

   Helpful little book
Nice but not as helpful as I was hoping for. Overall it was good advice, but I didn't agree with all the recommendations, so I had to be more aggressive with pruning, Mr. Caramore said.

   A must have for anyone who wants small fruit trees!
A book I recommend to anyone who reads it. Easy to read, and great to keep kids occupied. I already have a second one for a friend.

   Helpful little book
Thanks for the introduction, Shirley. It's great to have a book written for home gardeners, which really means you are not following commercial guidelines. I've looked at local orchards, too. No wonder your fruit trees don't look like that. Really had a hard time pruning, Mr. Dhaliwal said. This book gave me better ideas of what to keep and what to cut, and I learned that even if I make a mistake this year, I can correct next year, he said. I'm going to be cutting down and pruning semi-hard to spray, bag prune apples. I just purchased 1 peach and 2 apples. The apples will become espalier and the peach vase will open. Thanks for the tip. I do wish it would have more pictures of how to espalier, more pictures of pruning and a little less repetiion and fluff. Despite the initial skepticism, I'm glad I bought it.

   Inspirational Guide.
I've read all the books, and I love this one. Love the pictures, Kate. The whole thing is a travesty, even if Frey did write the book. Before you buy, read the book. Thanks to Ann Ralph, we have found the perfect match.

   Knowledge is power to break the rules of tree pruning.
I've never read a book like this. It is a great resource for tree growers and arborists alike. My heart told me small trees are possible because of bonsai, but the tree professionals, books, universities, say otherwise. I have a very small yard and I want lots of small fruit trees. Now I'm armed with the knowledge of the how and why to be able to step outside the box and test the waters of tree pruning with confidence.

   Great Pruning and Care Book!
I am a master gardener and found this book to be invaluable. I moved to a yard with what people think are beautiful large fruit trees, he said. I have found them to be totally unmanageable. It's too big for the space and I get way too much fruit. Four years ago, I was in a car accident. With her advice on what to prune and when to prune, I hope to take control of my existing trees and plant new ones that will be a lot less work and give me a good variety of fruit. She discusses when to prune for certain results, what to do with newly planted trees and how to properly manage older trees. Anyone who has ever grown or tried to grow their own fruit knows this book is for you.

   I recommend this book to anyone considering planting a fruit tree on their property!
It is the reason I have started a small orchard in my back yard and convinced myself that I could have a variety of fruit trees without losing control of them. I recommend this book to anyone considering planting a fruit tree on their property.
