“To prune plants well is not so much about knowing how and where to cut but about knowing what you are trying to achieve.”

I always love pottering around in our garden, taking care of the plants as a way to wind down and relax. I confess I’m still a beginner when it comes to pruning though, so when I saw this book popping up I was interested right away. Pruning Simplified is a great guide for beginners and professionals alike, with an insightful introduction and a detailed instruction on how to prune no less than 50 popular trees and shrubs. They will be a great help tending to my bougainvillea, camellia, fuchsia, hibiscus, hydrangea, lavender, azalea and roses! Each plant not only has instructions on how to prune and keep your plant healthy, but also when exactly you should prune. Very helpful! There is also a detailed description on how to prune trees and hedges, all combined with illustrations to help visualize where and how to cut. Pruning Simplified is a great reference for anyone wanting to learn more about pruning plants.
