   This is just the book I've been looking for!
I am not an organic person. He added: "I do not believe in better living through chemistry. I have several different kinds of fruit trees and berry brambles, and needed a correct way of getting them the nutrition they need organically. Thanks for the opportunity Mr. Phillips.

   The Holistic Orchard
I have read many, many, many, books by this writer and I cannot recommend this book highly enough. Oodles of practicality, go ahead and try it in the garden and also a lot of good inspirational thoughts.

   Superb!!
Thanks for the book. For anyone who has an interest in fruit trees, this is a must-have resource. I bought this on my Kindle, but will probably want a hard-copy of the book on my shelf, as this will be a go-to book!

   Too much vernacular
The text is written in colloquialisms and vernacular that can be confusing, it would be helpful if images of each pest and disease were included in order for a non-expert to confirm the cause of the problem.

   Coherent Holistic Guide to Fruit Growing
This book is well written and thorough, with good pictures, said Dr. Brian D. Kelly, a professor at the University of Michigan. Even with all the research, I have to pick with it is the seemingly random advice to use pea gravel around young trees for weed control. Michael does not really explain why he does this practice, which is illegal. Probably not harmful but it is the one area I have noticed where he might be misguided, Rodale said.

   Very helpful.
There are a lot of helpful articles on growing and harvesting fruits and berries. Not only methods to get rid of unwanted pests and diseases but also how to keep your orchard healthy so it can naturally heal and keep disease away. They cover general orchard practices, helpful to any grower, as well as detailed information on specific fruits and berries.

   There is alot of overarching, conceptual discussion, but ...
There is also a fundamental science and all the info you need to properly establish and manage your orchard. The book is written more conversationally than procedural, so just know that before you buy. I followed a majority of the guidance while setting up this year's orchard, he said. Instead of planting the same trees for both my neighbor and myself, I used the holistic method on my side of the road. And here we are in August, year one, and my side had literally 4x the foliage all the way down the rows. Everything is the same except for the authors' guidance. Mr. Daschle knows what he's talking about.
