This guide to pruning and training contains, in just one volume, the information gardeners need to maintain attractive, well-pruned and trained trees, shrubs, climbers, roses and fruit. 800 ornamental plants and fruits are covered. The different plant groups are covered in separate chapters, each beginning with a clear introduction explaining the general principles. Colour illustrations with step-by-step instructions are included for exemplary genera to illustrate standard pruning techniques and methods of special training. There follows an extensive A-Z of genera and species, containing detailed information about the particular needs of each plant. To explain the more unusual or difficult techniques, special "feature" pages - on such topics as topiary, hedging, bonsai, pleaching and pinch pruning are interspersed throughout the book.
