Whether focusing on deadheading or disbudding techniques to produce abundant flowers, cutting back in preparation for winter, clipping fruit trees for increased yield, or shaping topiaries, this book spells out each lesson in detail.

Knowing what, when, and how to prune is a vital skill for every gardener.

Whether focusing on deadheading or disbudding techniques to produce more abundant flowers, cutting back to prepare for winter, trimming fruit trees for increased yield, or the artful clipping of hedges into topiary, or covering other fundamentals of pruning--from the tools involved, to the basic physiology of the plant's response, to the legal ramifications of pruning--it spells out each lesson in detail.
