Roses and old apple ladies

Karin Berglund

“Roses must be chosen by the heart”, said the Little Prince in Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s classic children’s book.

And so it is – not just roses, everything in the garden is a personal choice.

This book is about roses that creep along the ground, climb up into the shrubbery and soar up into the treetops.

It is about bushes that flower in the winter, about fussy little plants that have to be pampered with fertiliser and water, about leaves like silk and velvet, those that are as red as blood, and beautiful fruit.

It is about cultivating vegetables in very little space, how fruit trees should be pruned, about the nicest apples, and how you give old apple varieties the beauty treatment.

Naturally, only organic cultivation methods are used.
