The Grape Grower
This comprehensive book distills the broad knowledge and longtime personal experience of Lon Rombough, one of North America's foremost authorities on viticulture. From finding and preparing the right site for a vineyard to training, trellising, and pruning vines to growing new grapes from seeds and cuttings, this book offers thorough and accessible information on all the basics. Chapters on grape species, varieties and hybrids, and technical information on the major (and minor) insect pests and diseases that affect grapes, as well as their organic controls, make this book an invaluable reference that readers will turn to again and again.
