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.

        This book provides local knowledge for growing and caring for fruit and nut trees in Australia, which helped us get our mini orchard planted. It includes interesting history about the trees, which gives it a personal feel. Picking this book up is like going to talk with a passionate orchard grower - you get stories and all the insider tips!

              Anyone trying to grow good fruit needs this book. It covers everything you need to know about every stage of successful fruit growing.
              The only book you need. AND, unlike most such books, written for Australia, not USA or UK.
