Lifelong gardener Judy Lowe gives you the knowledge to make the right cut the first time. "Pruning panic" is an all-too-familiar feeling among even experienced gardeners, but it's especially prevalent among those of us who are new to the practice. In Pruning: An Illustrated Guide , award-winning gardening writer Judy Lowe imparts over two decades of expertise, focusing on the most common backyard pruning needs for the most commonly grown landscape plants. From trees and shrubs to hydrangeas, azaleas, roses, and other perennials, Lowe takes an in-depth approach to all the pruning essentials. Throughout the book, her advice is accompanied by brilliantly detailed step-by-step line drawings that clearly demonstrate where and how to make precise, effective cuts. Lowe removes all intimidation from the pruning process: beyond the craft itself, you'll gain an understanding of the basic science behind plant growth, why plants need pruning, when they'll need it, and how pruning techniques can vary between plant species. So the next time you pick up a pruning saw or a pair of loppers, panic will be the furthest thing from your mind--and from your garden.
