This vintage book contains a detailed treatise on setting up and managing an orchard, with information on growing apples and pears, harvesting the fruit, producing for commercial gain, fertilisation, and much more. Including a wealth of useful information and handy tips, this is a volume that will be of considerable utility to the modern farmer, and one that would make for a fantastic addition to collections of allied literature. Contents include: "The Orchard", "Orchard Trees", "Fruit Management", "Fermentation", "The Orchard in its Commercial Aspect", "Renovation of the Orchards", "Orchard Prospects", "Report on the most Esteemed Varieties of Cider Apples, with their Sections", "List of the most Esteemed Varieties of Perry Pears, with their Sections", et cetera. Many old works such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern edition complete with a specially commissioned new introduction on making cider. First published in 1886.
