This was my first venture into the world of pruning. It started out promising, but then quickly moved into terminology I don't know. I need more step-by-step instructions, although it does have details about the specific plants I needed to know about. I got the overall gist, but I'm going to need something more. Also, this book focuses more on newly planted plants and preventative pruning, while I need information on "fixing" mature plants that have been improperly pruned or neglected.
This book is pretty good with the basics of plant anatomy and how to factor that into pruning. While a little long winded regarding all the various tools and their use, it is good for all beginner gardeners to hear. The attention to the plant-by-plant pruning makes this a good reference book.
