Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

It sounds simple enough, but pruning can confound even the most competent gardener. This new edition of Taunton’s award-winning book explains the do’s and don’ts of cutting back; from humble houseplants to the most amazing exotics, readers learn how to make the right cut the first time, every time. With straightforward prose, over 250 photographs, and 135 drawings, this essential reference walks gardeners through the process of pruning everything from ornamental trees and bushes to topiaries and bonsai. The author, Lee Reich, is a respected horticulturist who writes frequently on gardening subjects. Here, he demystifies the timing and techniques that result in the most successful pruning for healthy growth and good form. Updated with the latest information and enhanced illustrations, this book belongs in every gardener’s library, whether he or she is a professional, a landscaping veteran, or is pruning for the very first time.

Synopsis:

Every gardener knows that pruning makes plants healthier, more fruitful, and more beautiful. But most gardeners wince at the thought of pruning. In The Pruning Book, master horticulturist Lee Reich provides a remedy for "fear of pruning, " making this dreaded task almost fun. In easy-to-read, engaging language, Reich gives specific methods for pruning hundreds of species from the cold climates to the tropics. He covers every type of plant, from ornamental bushes, evergreens, ornamental vines, and edible fruit and nut trees to houseplants. For those with special pruning interests Reich also gives time-tested advice for bonsai, topiary, espalier, and pleaching. He even takes a fresh look at such routine chores as mowing a lawn, including his own strategy for creating "lawn nouveau." With this witty and useful reference, any gardener can learn to like pruning.
