NWYardWorks, October 31, 2010 (view all comments by NWYardWorks)
Being somewhat of a novice in the pruning and training of certain types of shrubs and trees, I found this book to be both informative and addictive as it guided me through the process of new and creative ways of looking at a shrub. Though not at all new to the professional, a guide that is a much a part of the learning process, for myself, of how these plants grow. This guide is a must for any gardener, beginner, novice or pro alike.
