The newest entry in what The New York Times Book Review calls "A brilliant collection of gardening books." From the renowned Brooklyn Botanic Garden--visited by more than 750,000 people each year--comes this spectacularly photographed pruning guide for every growing region. Its concise and exquisitely illustrated format; practical, hands-on advice; detailed instructions on how to prune the most difficult plants; and information on the right timing for pruning ornamental trees, shrubs and vines make this manual a must-have for any gardener. The top experts in the field reveal insider details on the why and when of pruning; the "kindest cuts": where and how to snip; the tools to do the work properly; and the different techniques to use for particular plants. Find out how to trim deciduous shrubs and trees; conifers; and vines, climbers, and other ascending varieties; and roses. Plus, there's a section devoted to "special cases." It's a gold mine of practical and inspirational information, and a great value too.Cutler, Karan D. is the author of 'Pruning Trees, Shrubs & Vine' with ISBN 9781889538594 and ISBN 1889538590.
