First published in 1999, this standard reference book has been revised in 2010, updating most of the photographs and some of the text.
It covers how to prune a full range of plant types, including deciduous and evergreen trees and shrubs, vines, various fruit and nut trees and bushes, house and herbaceous plants, plus gives specific instructions for each genus of plant.
In some cases (e.g., clematis), it lists every variety and separates them into groups, each with its own pruning technique. Other specialized techniques discussed include topiary, pollarding, pleaching, and espalier.
An all-around pruning book suitable for novice and experienced gardeners, it is filled with detailed and specific instructions.
