About The Author

Louis Glowinkski came to Melbourne when he was four. Emerging some two decades later with a medical degree from Melbourne University, he joined a busy family medical practice in the western suburbs. The rejuvenation of a neglected backyard orchard in his Caulfield home sparked his interest in, or more correctly obsession with, growing fruit, nuts and berries - including many unusual and tropical and semi-tropical plants.

        Comments about The Complete Book of Fruit Growing in Australia:

        As a keen gardener, but relatively new to growing fruit trees, I was looking for a book which covered all aspects of growing fruit trees. This book ticked all the boxes, it is easy to read and gives plenty of detail on everything from choosing the correct tree for your area, all the basics of pruning, soil maintenance, which sprays to use and when. I'm totally impressed and know I can rely on the information given as it is specifically written for the Australian gardener.
