The Fruit Trees Book: Growing Orange & Citrus Trees by Vas Blagodarskiy is a handy manual that will guide readers on how to grow citrus trees anywhere. You need not worry that the fruit might be sprayed with preservatives and pest sprays, if it is as fresh as the label suggests, and if the fruit has been dyed to give a deep coloration. Reading this book will take you through the critical stages of the tree’s development and you will soon be harvesting your own fruit. This book guides you on the technical side of growing your own citrus trees at home, including the layout of the orchard, climate requirements, irrigation techniques, leaf sampling, planting tips and more to help your citrus trees survive and thrive for many years of fresh, homegrown citrus fruit.

I found the book very useful and helpful; the author handles the topic methodically, making it easy to plant any of the citrus fruits and watch them grow. The Commoner Container Planting Mistakes chapter will guide you on how to avoid common mistakes that are usually made when planting in containers, and the Tools of the Trade section is helpful too when it comes to buying the perfect tools for pruning. The author speaks about common pests and diseases that can cause problems to the citrus tree and you will be prepared for what to expect once the tree has grown and fruit starts appearing. This book is a must-have for all gardeners, and it is a rewarding experience reading it, planting your own citrus trees, and relishing the citrus fruits grown in your own yard or orchard.
