A beautifully presented, clear, comprehensive bible from the man who knows more than anyone about growing nuts  Mark Diacono, gardener, food writer and broadcaster

 How to Grow Your Own Nuts is the best guide I've seen to home and small-farm nut growing for the temperate climates, featuring species selection, cultivating, harvest, and processing. - Eric Toensmeier, permaculturist, author and Yale University lecturer

 All who have room for a tree should grow nuts – serious nutrition with huge gastronomic potential. In yet another beautiful book, one of our most accomplished forest gardeners shows how.  Colin Tudge, biologist, science writer and broadcaster, founder of The Campaign for Real Farming

 Nuts - so delicious, nutritious and versatile - are at the heart of our culinary tradition and every page of this unique book is rich with the authenticity, passion and experience of a master grower. This practical and inspiring book is a comprehensive guide to growing, harvesting and processing nuts for the gardener, homesteader and commercial farmer. Filled with gorgeous illustrations of trees and nuts in all stages of maturity, it covers old favourites (hazelnuts and walnuts) and less common varieties (hickories and butternuts) too.

 Martin’s earlier books on creating a forest garden, and growing perennial vegetables, are considered must-read "how to" handbooks. This will be, too.

 

Martin Crawford is a one-man wonder! In this grand and beautiful book on nut culture he has assembled decades of practical insight to help gardeners and orchardists grow ‘bread from trees.’ From planting to harvesting, selection to storage, and pruning to pest control, you’ll find the answers here. Complete with a thorough and lovingly illustrated guide to 19 species of nuts for the temperate world, this book sets a new standard for a vital but little-known field. If we must transform our agriculture to build soil and store carbon, then nut trees belong in all our futures.—Peter Bane, author of The Permaculture Handbook

How to Grow Your Own Nuts is the best guide I've seen to home and small-farm nut growing for the temperate climates, featuring species selection, cultivating, harvest, and processing. It includes many lesser-known species alongside standards like walnut, chestnut, and hazel. This is an essential guide to production of these perennial staple crops. Eric Toensmeier, permaculturist, author and Yale University lecturer
