5.0 out of 5 stars Pruning Shrubs and Trees 19 Nov 2010
By Yorkie

We have an old RHS Wisley handbook on pruning ornimental shrubs purchased some 20 years ago and wanted to replace it. We couldn't find one as good as the Wisley book until we came across this one which does what it says on the front cover. Nice colour photos to show the correct way to prune. An excellent book.

4.0 out of 5 stars good for beginners 20 July 2011
Verified Purchase
This book is good for beginners as it is just about all illustration. Pruning seems rather complicated in that different plants are done at different times and when you have just moved into a place and have your first ever garden, it's not easy when you don't even know the names of most of the plants. For example, there are 3 clematis in the garden, all different and, consequently, all needing different treatment! Still, identifying plants is another subject altogether! So, if you know what you've got, it's a good book.

5.0 out of 5 stars I can follow this!! 16 April 2012
Verified Purchase
I found this much easier to understand than pruning sections in other gardening books. The photos are much more helpful than the more usual diagrams. This book mentions many specific varieties of plant so I could check for instance which group my clematis was. So far my plants seem to have benefited from 'proper' pruning!!!

Useful for beginners if perhaps a little too concise. More information needed on where when and what to prune. Service excellent as usual.
