Looking for a book on grapevine growing, I happened across this one on Amazon. Being a Wisley product, it is packed with solid well proven information and advice on the successful growing of all types of grapes for dessert and winemaking. There is an abundance of good photographs. To my mind this is the only book on the subject necessary for anyone wishing to learn everything there is to know about grape vine culture. Highly recommended.

As this book is about choosing varieties and growing them in the UK I expected more pictures of the different types available. However this does give equal coverage to growing under glass and in the open, with a section on pests and diseases. The diagrams of training methods are clear and the text is easy to read and understand. Best in combination with other titles. Definitely concise!
