HOW TO PRUNE TREES & SHRUBS
Help your trees, shrubs, and vines look and yield their best by making the right cut every time. Whether you are hoping for more flowers or fruit, trying to create a dense screen, or struggling to manage out-of-control growth, there is a pruning technique to achieve your goals. Expert gardener Barbara Ellis explains how a plant responds to pruning, how and when to use basic cuts, and what tools to use. Her plant-by-plant guide will give you the confidence you need to make that first cut.
This is a good book about how to prune plants around your yard. The author starts off with the types of tools you will need. Then moves into the cuts, and angles of cuts which helps for a stronger and healthier planter when new growth starts. Especially for plants like roses which will bigger if done correctly. She also goes over fruit trees which helps for new fruit in the following year, and she also suggests when you should hire someone for a job. There are pictures or diagrams to show the different types of cuts and where you should cut. Some things I knew already but some I did not. I found this to be very helpful. I got this book from netgalley. I gave it 5 stars. Follow us at www.1rad-readerreviews.com
