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

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.
