An essential guide for anyone growing berries.
Berry fruits have long been used and appreciated in the kitchen, but the aesthetic appeal and practical benefits they bring to the garden landscape are all too often ignored. Homegrown Berries covers the entire process, from planting to picking that first luscious fruit. And it covers everything you'd want to grow: strawberries, raspberries, blackberries, blueberries, gooseberries, currants, and elderberries. You'll learn the best varieties for your region, how to fit them into your landscape (including borders and container), and how to maintain them for peak harvest year after year. This accessible guide will lead you down the proven path to a bountiful, berry-filled garden. Revised and expanded by Teri Dunn Chase, incorporating portions of The Berry Grower's Companion ©2000 by Barbara L. Bowling (now out of print). Softcover. 224 pp.
