The Pruning Book
Pruning sounds simple enough, but it can confound even the most competent gardeners. This updated edition by Lee Reich (Taunton Press, 2010) explains the do's and dont's of cutting back everything from houseplants to exotics. You'll learn how to make the right cut every time. There are more than 250 photographs and 135 drawings to illustrate the techniques. Reich holds a doctorate in horticulture and has done extensive research on the subject, enabling him to make pruning easily understood by all.
