"Over the years I have seen many gardening books on landscaping, shrubs, trees, and ornamentals. There has always been a need for an intelligent, easy to understand, well written book on fruit. Stella Otto's first edition of The Backyard Orchardist set the bar high. This second edition improves on what I feel has long been the best reference on growing fruit trees. Thank you for this wonderfully written book. I recommend it to anyone, from those who are just starting out, to a pro who wants to refresh themselves on the why, when, and where they do what they do."--Bill Ford, 3rd generation fruit grower, owner of Johnson Nursery
Stella Otto got her first taste for fruit growing during annual family outings to the U-pick orchards of western Massachusetts. Following receipt of a B.S. in horticulture from Michigan State University, she worked at one of largest tree fruit nurseries in the U.S and a major tart cherry orchard near Traverse City, MI, before she and her husband eventually started their own diversified fruit farm in northern Michigan. Stella has authored two books, the award-winning The Backyard Orchardist, and The Backyard Berry Book. She has written freelance articles for numerous magazines, appeared on the Discovery Channel, and been interviewed on NPR and other gardening radio programs. Stella presently cultivates a fruitful family garden and enjoys her horses on a 10-acre homestead in northern Michigan. She can also be found cultivating fruit gardening information on her blog The Backyard Fruit Gardener at www.stellaotto.com.
