Description from Garrett Wade
Clear cut, accessible advice, with over hundreds of color photographs, detailed drawings, tips and tricks from the pros, The Pruning Book is an indispensible reference for the home gardener and landscaper. From the basic whether to, when to, which one and with what of pruning to the advanced, such as restoring bountiful, productive life to a neglected fruit tree to more exotic demonstrations of the art of pruning -pollarding, espalier, bonsai and topiary.
