5.0 out of 5 stars top tips from Titchmarsh 14 April 2009
By emma who reads a lot TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback
This is the kind of thing Alan Titchmarsh is really good at: explaining simply, but without skimping on the detail, how to do the complicated job of pruning. I always follow his rules on wisteria and on clematis, but to have all the information you need on pruning in one slim book is great.

You will get some pin-ups of AT with his telescopic loppers but most of the book is really good information. (I never knew that wisteria will flower better if trained horizontally - I always assumed higgledy-piggledy was fine so that's one more tip to store away for next year.) The diagrams are really clear, as are the photos, and there's lots of good information on the best way to prune different plants, remove suckers, prevent 'bleeding', renovating fruit trees, creating standard trees, doing coppicing, making a topiary spiral, preventing 'reversion'; so many different kinds of pruning! All in all you end up with the idea that this is a crucial and underrated task in the garden that's essential to get everything looking really healthy.

A really clear helpful book that incorporates an amazing amount without ever seeming over-bearing or heavy. Got me straight outside thinking about how to get my rambling Albertine under control. Really really good value.

This is an excellent book. I bought it for my daughter who is novice gardener to help her identify the range of shrubs in the establishd garden of her new house. The book does that and gives clear instructions on pruning and maintenance -she was thrilled to bits with it. Strongly recommended.

My friend had borrowed this book from the library more than once. I suggested to her that it would be better to buy it and save herself the trouble of travelling to and from the library. She is delighted with it.
