This is a fantastic little book and one I have in my own collection. It gives a great run down on the basics of pruning with clear easy to follow drawings and very little reading to do! With a section dedicated to equipment, shrubs, trees, fruit trees, hedges, climbers, roses and the times at which to prune, it is a valuable resource for anyone, even if they have only a few plants in their garden. 'How' and 'when' do I prune? are some of the most commonly asked questions I get- this book will stop the task being so daunting!
