Product description


Reviews of the previous edition: "With its straightforward prose and diagram, "The Pruning Book" is a good antidote to 'pruning panic', an affliction known to experienced and novice gardeners alike." "Country Living Gardener" "Reich does a super job of simplifying what can be a confusing topic. . .Lots of pictures and sketches help immensely...At last someone has laid out the ground rules to decipher the mess once and for all." --"Sunday Patriot-News" "A more detailed approach and covers a wide variety of plants. . . Of particular value are the explanations of timing and techniques for pruning deciduous ornamental bushes." --"Detroit"" News and Free Press" "The author is an accomplished horticulturist and garden writer, and he melds these two talents to achieve a book that is both informative and easy to read...This book should be in the library of all serious gardeners and landscape maintainers."--"HortScience"
