While the act of pruning is simple enough, knowing where and when to prune can confound even experienced gardeners. For more than half a century, Robert Sanford Martin’s How to Prune Fruit Trees has been the go-to guide for pruners of all levels of expertise. As one reviewer noted, “This book simplifies what other books complicate. It has a small amount of text paired with line drawings that help break pruning tasks down into something you can easily understand.” Martin has judiciously pruned his words to make his advice as clear and simple as possible. His guidance in the art of cutting back and thinning out has been responsible for the preservation of countless healthy trees and orchards.
In this enhanced edition, additional information from H. H. Thomas’s Pruning Made Easy explores the treatment of roots, side shoots, sub-laterals, standards, cordon trees, and other aspects of plant care. Well illustrated and clear, this book is an indispensable guide for year-round pruning success for both seasoned and amateur gardeners.
