    Hi PSN folk

    Can anyone suggest suitable books for planning a fruit tree orchard?

    I'm told, Growing Fruit in Australia and The Complete Book of Fruit Growing in Australia are two to start with, but always looking for more. 

    The available space is roughly 30m * 10m, north facing, unfortunately at the moment its very sand soil. Thus the need to plan and prepare holes for future trees with compost, allowing it to mature before planting. 

    Cheers

    Shawn

    There's a couple of pages in the designers manual that could be useful. You should also consider a fox-proof orchard enclosure.
