Hello,

I am knew to having land and growing stuff. We are in the process of selecting possible fruit trees for a small orchard we would like to have. I have and continue to read many posts on this forum. However, are there books/videos you would suggest that would help me understand, design and care for whatever I do decide to plant?

Thanks
Jim

Michael Phillips books are some of the best you're going to find for starting a small orchard -

THE APPLE GROWER

You could get them from amazon as well. Extremely Highly Recommended!

Thanks. I just downloaded The a Holistic Orchard and also ordered the Permaculture Orchard DVD.
 
You can't have everything. Where would you put it?
