Cass Turnbull’s Guide to Pruning: What, When, Where & How to Prune for a More Beautiful Garden
by Cass Turnbull, 365 pages, 7¼x9, softcover. I’m the kind of tree gardener who feels that one pruning book is not enough. Each one has something different to offer. Most sit on my shelf for quick reference. This is the first pruning guide I’ve wanted to read from cover to cover! Cass Turnbull sheds a bright—even glaring—light on pruning and what she has coined “mal-pruning.” Fleshing out the details with clear how-to and how-not-to instructions along with useful illustrations and laugh-out-loud humor, she walks the reader through the basics and delves into the specifics for more than 150 plant species. Turnbull urges us to look more closely at how plants grow in order to make sense of why and how we should prune them. Chapters are grouped by plant habit (mounding, cane-growing, tree-like, vines and groundcover) so even if your favorite plants are not listed here, you can adapt the methods to meet your specific needs. -Jen Ries
