Pruning is essential to keeping trees, shrubs, and other plants healthy and beautiful. Not only does pruning keep plants from getting unwieldy and large, it also allows light and air to reach more branches, encourages fruit and blossom growth, removes diseased branches, and adds structural strength to plants. But many homeowners and gardeners feel overwhelmed by pruning. When is the right time to prune? How much should be removed? What's the difference between pinching and heading back? What tools should be used? How can a homeowner ensure that pruning ultimately enhances -- and doesn't harm -- the plant? For all these questions and more, The Pruning Answer Book has the answer. Written by two highly respected garden writers with years of experience in providing pruning advice, this book is sure to become a tool as essential as the pruning shears themselves. With clear, concise advice, a browsable format, a friendly tone, and how-to illustrations, the book provides everything a homeowner needs to safely achieve attractive, long-lasting, and healthy plants. The latest in Storey's enormously popular Answer Book series, The Pruning Answer Book demystifies the subject, helping even novices successfully prune a variety of woody plants -- flowering trees, fruit and nut trees, shrubs, brambles, evergreens, vines, and groundcovers. Homeowners will feel as if they have a master arborist by their side, helping them bring out the best in their greenery. & nbsp
