Do you have an old grapevine that needs training? A forsythia that has become too leggy? Evergreen shrubs that threaten to push through your first-floor windows? Have you just purchased a new home and feel mystified by the pruning chores ahead? If so, help is here in Pruning Trees, Shrubs & Vines. Pruning is one of the best things you can do for your plants and trees, if it's done the right way. When pruned regularly and properly, your plants stay vibrantly healthy. Flowering shrubs and vines produce more blossoms, fruit trees and berry patches yield more fruit, and hedges and evergreens remain full and well-shaped. Pruning Trees, Shrubs & Vines offers all the advice you need to start pruning fruit and shade trees, evergreens, grape vines, berry bushes, ornamental shrubs and vines, hedges, and roses like a professional. You'll learn how, where, and when to prune as well as what tools to use. For quick reference you'll find a pruning timetable, a condensed plant-by-plant pruning guide, and an A-to-Z glossary of pruning terms.
