Grow Great Fruit Program

"Learn How To Grow Great Fruit"

We get loads of questions from people we meet and lots of emails asking how to look after fruit trees. That’s why we’ve put together the Grow Great Fruit program.

It's packed with details of absolutely everything to do each year—how to keep your soil healthy, rules of pruning, how to figure out how much water to give your trees, how to keep your trees healthy and free of pests and diseases, and the many tools, tricks, and skills we’ve learned to make sure we harvest a crop every single year.

This program will suit you if 

  • you lack confidence with your fruit trees
  • you're never quite sure what to do, or when to do it—but you know you have to make a decision
  • you find it hard to prune because your trees look different to the ones in the books or on YouTube
  • you are feeling frustrated about where to get reliable advice
  • you'd love to feed your family organic fruit all year, but feel it's too expensive
  • you are sick of not being able to buy fruit that tastes good
  • you are worried about making mistakes—or just don't know where to start
