“Few gardening techniques have been cloaked in as much mystique as pruning, yet basically it is a simple and logical process. In temperate countries its timing is strongly influenced by the onset and retreat of winter weather that would damage young shoots. Tropical and subtropical regions also have their own growth-limiting influences, particularly droughts, both seasonal and prolonged.
this practical step-by-step book deals only with pruning the range of trees, shrubs, and fruits that are widely grown in temperate regions. Sections provide expert advice on and pruning techniques for shrubs, roses, climbing plants, hedges, and fruit trees.”
