Fairly comprehensive information about how and when to prune various bushes and climbers, fairly clear to understand. I did want a little more information, such as where *not* to cut my poor mis-pruned holly bushes, but for the most part this book has just about everything I need to prune well. I'm buying a copy.

This has been a helpful guide to keep handy while my shrubs/trees are young and pruning is critical for helping them to have a lovely, full shape as they reach maturity. Concise with great photos, recommend for beginning gardeners.

A good little reference with basic info and clear figures illustrating where to make your cut. This book was a smidge less helpful for me because about half the plants in it are for zones warmer than my current Zone 5. Good basic information though. 3.5 stars.
