Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
DK's exceptional manual uses clear text and wonderful photos to instruct readers on the pruning and training of ornamental trees, fruit trees, shrubs, soft fruits, climbing plants, and roses. Each section has basic information on techniques as well as plant profiles. (LJ 9/1/96) Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.
Library Journal
If your garden is as diverse but as overgrown and storm damaged as mine, this may be the book for you. Brickell, former director general of the Royal Horticultural Society, and plant-care author Joyce have produced a comprehensive manual covering over 800 ornamental trees and shrubs, fruits, roses, and climbing plants. Each section includes information on basic and advanced pruning techniques and on renovating damaged or neglected plants. Special training techniques such as pollarding and creating topiary are also outlined, while plant silhouettes provide information on expected size and natural growth habit. The step-by-step instructions are easy to follow, as are the detailed, high-quality pruning diagrams and photographs. Some of these illustrations are larger but otherwise the same as those in the Brickell-edited The American Horticultural Society Encyclopedia of Gardening (LJ 11/15/93). While that work provides complete gardening information, from propagation to pests, the new manual offers more extensive pruning and training information for a greater number of plants in a more concise manner.

    A Bland Title for One of the Great Gardening Books

    How interesting can a book on pruning & training be? Of all the books I've ever owned on gardening, this book stands far above the others. The techniques are amply illustrated with excellent photography showing the ultimate outcome of your efforts. If you want your garden to really stand out, and are willing to spend a little time spread out over a few years, there is no better book to inspire you to be a gardening artist. It also spends the appropriate amount of time on the very basics of pruning...how, why, when.

    you too can do it

    I found this book to be profoundly interested to someone who has a large orchard and garden. I will be using it as a reference book.
