Reviews - What do customers think about American Horticultural Society Pruning & Training (American Horticultural Society Practical Guides)?
Go Prune!!! Sep 29, 2008
Saw this book at regular retail store but it was too expensive. Checked this site and the price was right! I thought I knew all about pruning and found it a "therapeutic pleasure" then I learned so much more from this publcation. It's excellent. Lots of detail, color pictures and virtually all plants, trees & shrubs and their structure types are covered. I highly recommend this one - puts the others in the shade with clear up-to-date & authorative ideas & instructions.
Good Book Sep 23, 2008
This is a well illustrated and thought out book covering alot of material. It goes into depth on some items but not all of the ones I was hoping for. However, on the bright side, I learned some things that I didn't know and filled in a gap or 2 on some things I was already pretty familiar with. Great book if you want to cover alot of ground, not so good if you are looking for very narrow specifics.
American Horticultural Society Pruning & Training Apr 6, 2008
Recommended by a professor of horticulture as an excellent pruning manual, this book has excellent charts and diagrams of many different woody plants.
Very thorough, great book Feb 10, 2008
This book is the best I have seen on pruning all types of plants. Good use of pictures as well.
Yeah I can prune now! Dec 18, 2007
I kill plants! Not on purpose just some people are green thumb challenged. My husband and I bought quite a few fruit tree last summer and we had no idea how to prune them this book has saved me it is easy to understand(for those of us who are not gifted in yard care things) and easy to follow with lots of good information. It also is not a pruning for dummies book it really is for anybody I think even experienced gardeners would love it. It is just clean and uncomplicated.
