• Blackberry, loganberry and tayberry
• Black currant

This book has been written for beginners and experienced gardeners, with school gardening in mind, pointing out that choice of varieties should be influenced by holiday dates. Nothing is more disappointing than missing out on the fruits of your labour because school has broken up. But choosing an early or late fruiting variety will get over this problem.
A fruit garden takes children outside, and enables them to have practical experience of growing their own food. It teaches them about their natural environment, the weather, the seasons, plant growth and various ecosystems.
Eco Schools, Forest Schools, and community groups, such as guides and scouts can use this book to develop a fruit garden project.
