What sets Bob Flowerdew’s Pruning, Training, and Tidying apart from other books on the subject is that it does not advise pruning every single plant in your garden. Rather, as Flowerdew puts it, this guide explains the simplest basics of pruning, and how to get admirable results without obsessing over the growing pattern of every plant. Whatever you are growing, and whatever your garden looks like, Pruning, Training, and Tidying will help you to keep your garden beautiful and functional.
In Pruning, Training and Tidying, Bob Flowerdew draws on his long experience as an organic gardener to guide you through the process in his customary clear and straightforward manner. He explains when is the best time of year to prune each plant, tree or shrub, and gives clear instructions on where and how to cut. He provides advice on selecting and using the best tools and equipment, and tips on how to increase cropping and flowering. Bob also gives handy and imaginative suggestions to guide you through the seemingly never-ending task of keeping your garden trim and tidy. One in an indispensable series of books, Pruning, Training and Tidying will answer all your queries and help you achieve a well-maintained and prosperous garden.
A dictionary as well as a thesaurus, and a much simplified one at that! It gives you all the basic words used in the English language, their chief meanings, all important synonyms and antonyms where needed. To make the meaning of each entry clear, it uses the words in a sentence and where the secondary meanings are considerably different from the first, uses it in two or more sentences. Much larger dictionaries and synonym books are available, but they often confuse the reader by providing long lists of complicated, often rare words, and other technicalities. This book is much more useful, and used with good judgment, should yield excellent results
