About this book

This is a gardener's guide to cutting, trimming and training, with over 650 photographs and illustrations, and practical, easy-to-follow advice. It is a complete guide to pruning and training ornamental plants, including trees, shrubs, topiary, hedges, climbers, wall shrubs, roses, perennials and annuals. All techniques shown in over 650 step-by-step photographs and drawings, making the tasks clear and easy to follow. It contains a fully illustrated plant directory that describes the timing, frequency and methods of pruning.

This essential how-to guide aims to take the mystery out of pruning, showing that the correct training and pruning of ornamental garden plants has many rewards, including better flower production, healthier plants, improved plant shape and a tidier garden. How to Prune Trees, Shrubs & Climbers covers plants such as buddleja, ceanothus, hazel, hebe, lilac, maple, St John's wort, Virginia creeper and yew. Each chapter explains how to prune the plant once it is established, and a directory looks at a wide range of ornamental plants and shows how to prune them. The expert advice will help gardeners to keep their trees, shrubs and climbers looking their best all year round.
