This info packed little book shows the best types of citrus fruit for your
garden and tells how to grow them. Although the book covers the many types of citrus, most of them grow in the same way because they are closely related. Almost all kinds of citrus trees need serious protection from frost, but some are well suited to a sunny indoor room. Citrus is one of the world's
most useful herbs. Here are recipes for drinks, food, beauty products,
household products, insect repellents, air fresheners, and more. Don't waste
the fruit, peels, or even the blossoms. What a fun reference! In this colorful
handbook, Florida author Monica Brandies shares her ways with wonderful
homegrown or purchased citrus:
* Buy or harvest citrus. Tips on
selection and storage of the best fruit.
* Grow citrus at home. Indoors in
cool climates and outdoors in many southern states, here's what you need to
know to keep your citrus trees and shrubs healthy.
* Citrus in the kitchen. Recipes and
techniques for food and drink from citrus fruits, peels, and flowers. Treats!
Waste nothing, not even the peels. * Citrus around the house. Air
fresheners, potpourri, citrus vinegar, citrus products for cleaning and stain
removal, and orange oil for multiple heavy duty uses.
* Citrus in the garden. Kill bugs
and fire ants, repel mosquitoes and cats, and make worm compost.
