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.
