Pruning, Training, and Tidying

By Bob Flowerdew

What sets Bob Flowerdew’s Pruning, Training, and Tidying apart from other books on the subject is that it does not advise pruning every single plant in your garden. Rather, as Flowerdew puts it, this guide explains the simplest basics of pruning, and how to get admirable results without obsessing over the growing pattern of every plant. Whatever you are growing, and whatever your garden looks like, Pruning, Training, and Tidying will help you to keep your garden beautiful and functional.
