A Guide for the Organic Orchardist
  jhawn | Jul 31, 2017 |
Phillips does an excellent job covering many topics. I found the pruning chapter most revealing. I've skimmed the topic before, but it never made as much sense as presented here. He offers pros and cons for many of his practices, and that is particularly helpful for independent decisions for the reader. I'd love to read something most recently by him to see whether his practices have evolved. ( )

Everything, I mean EVERYTHING to do with growing apple trees, in the warm language of a learned orcharder who knows his stuff and loves his apples. Wonderful just to read, as well as useful and practical how-to advice, background, and why. ( )
