“Excellent text for shaping trees, shrubs, and conifers.” —Booklist

Pruning is an indispensable part of garden maintenance, but it is also one of the most difficult. Successful pruning requires a thorough knowledge of a plant’s growth and flowering habits. In Essential Pruning Techniques Tony Kirkham—the head of the arboretum and gardens at the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew—shares his decades of knowledge and expertise and expands on the groundbreaking work done by George E. Brown. Step-by-step photographs clearly show the general principles of pruning, and profiles of 379 woody plants include advice on habit, attributes, reasons for pruning, and the best time to prune. Essential Pruning Techniques is a must-have reference for home gardeners and professionals.

Knowledge of proper technique and the needs of individual plants makes it possible to develop a strong framework and correct awkward, dangerous, or unattractive growth. Pruning can also help maintain or improve flower display and fruit production and ensure that your trees and shrubs will look their best year-round. Whatever your goal, Essential Pruning Techniques provides detailed descriptions of what to do - accompanied by step-by-step photos - and specific instructions for nearly 400 woody plants. Clear, comprehensive, and authoritative, this is a must-have volume for your garden library.--COVER.… (more)
