Successful Berry Growing: How to Plant, Prune, Pick and Preserve Bush and Vine Fruits Reviews
While this is an older book and some of it will be dated. This will effect the price values given for commercial values as well as the cultivars talked about. Beyond that this book is very well written and reads well. It flows more as a story than it does as a text book. I have found the information valuable and am confident in the information as the author is writing from first hand experience and not just rewriting information from other books.
This is book's sixth printing was 1977. Even though the information is over 28 years old the book is timeless. the diagrams for pruning are simple, easy to understand and easily implemented. I would definitely recommend this book as a reference to your library on growing berries!!
I love all of Gene's books, this one is no exception!
I first got acquainted with this book at my brother's camp and decided I needed my own copy for reference. It is a bit dated, but the authors experience and love for all kinds of berry bushes comes through on every page. For someone just starting out as I am, this book will become one I refer to often. The humor Mr. Logsdon weaves throughout is priceless.
this by far is the best book on growing better that i have ever read. I had got it at the library and realized I needed it as reference.
Oldie but goodie, this is a great little book that covers everything you need to know about growing all kinds of berries.
Very straightforward and useful. Easy and fun to read. Very worthwhile purchase.
