Perfect for the Gardener or Host who enjoys cooking and baking and doesn't have room for mature fruit trees.
Included is a specially selected range of seeds to grow, (some of them unusual) productive plants with an interesting variety of looks and flavors.
It does not require a lot of space to make a fruit garden. A simple raised bed or integrating berry or melon plants into garden borders works well. Most can be grown in containers or pots on a patio or balcony. Start in fall indoors for spring planting.
