Orin Martin's book Fruit Trees for Every Garden has been recognized by the American Horticultural Society as one of the outstanding gardening books of 2019.

Martin, manager of the Alan Chadwick Garden, coauthored Fruit Trees for Every Garden: An Organic Approach to Growing Apples, Pears, Peaches, Plums, Citrus, and More with Manjula Martin.

The book was recognized for its detailed information and described by one judge as “a no-nonsense guide for beginning fruit tree growers using the French intensive method of the late Alan Chadwick.” Another judge noted the authors’ overall expertise but singled out the extensive pruning section for high praise, which brought Martin particular joy, because he said it was a difficult section to write—"and even more difficult to negotiate with the editor."
