Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

Nature does not prune, so all gardeners will benefit from John Cushnie's 40 years of experience. Most existing pruning books are either too general or frighteningly encyclopedic, but Cushnie gives readers everything they need-and no more. How to Prune covers all the basic techniques and includes a directory with specific instructions on pruning over 500 popular garden plants.

Includes index.

Paperback ed. published: 2009.
