Keeping Fruit Trees ALIVE eBook

ebook coming soon graphic

Over the past 3 years, I’ve scoured books, courses, and videos and studied Permaculture Design at Oregon State University to discover the masters’ methods for growing fruit trees.

The goal? To keep fruit trees alive long enough so they can mature and become independent. This means being as hands-off as possible, with little to no fertilization and irrigation needed.

If you don’t think this is possible—master gardeners are already doing it!

And I’m giving you the manual.

Here’s a sneak peek of my ebook’s chapters:

  1. Climate
  2. Soil
  3. Planting
  4. Watering
  5. Pollinating

  6. Pruning
  7. Propagating
  8. Pests
  9. Diseases
  10. Diagnosing

The release date is this fall, but in the meantime, sign up to get notified of any updates. I’ll also send you my two free guides on fruit trees.
