To prune or not to prune? When to prune? Why prune at all? Just some of the questions this seemingly complex subject raises. But a basic understanding of the reasons behind the methods will reveal an underlying logic: to encourage flowering, fruit, improve the shape or make bushier. The expertise of the Royal Horticultural Society is beyond doubt. On the brink of celebrating its centenary, the Society has promoted horticultural excellence and training since its inception. Written by experts in layman's terms, this is both a visual and written guide to the topic of pruning and training. Lavishly illustrated and clearly captioned, all aspects are covered for every type of plant: trees, shrubs, climbers, fruit trees and roses, from initial pruning at planting to established trees needing shaping or rejuvenation. This is THE definitive guide and a must for every gardener. - Lucy Watson
