We all know, fruit trees need water—simple. What seems to be less well known is how much water trees need, when they need it, and what’s the most efficient way to deliver it to them. In this book we demystify these things, giving the home fruit grower the information needed to not only monitor their watering, but also set up a system that works, is efficient, makes the most of our most precious resource, and gives the best chance of getting a good return. 
This book - like all our teaching - is based on a few simple principles:
Diversity of supply = resilience, so create multiple water sources if possible: tank, grey water, reticulated, dam, bore. 
The most efficient water storage is your soil, so create healthy soil with high organic matter levels, and plan your garden to maximise water soaking and minimise runoff.
The more automatic your watering system, the better.
Plan your watering system with the capacity to provide enough water for mature trees with a full load of fruit in drought conditions.
Check, repair and improve system each year.

Grow Great Fruit Program

We grow organically, and teach organic growing principles and methods. We’re aware of the changing climate, so the farming methods we use help to create solutions, not add to the problem. We've poured years of experience into our farm-tested Grow Great Fruit program after talking to hundreds of home growers, and figuring out what you need most...information, security, and someone you can trust to help you solve your problems.
