Pruning – Fruit Trees and Berry Shrubs
Pruning – Fruit Trees and Berry ShrubsSusanna Rosén, Pia Lundgren , illustrated by Eva Rönnblom
Pruning is an important part of gardening – especially when it gets to our fruit trees and berry shrubs. If we want them to carry fruits and thrive from year to year, we need to take care of them in the best way. And who does not want to enjoy cherry clusters, sweet and sour gooseberries, ripe raspberries and all the different kinds of apples?
To cultivate edible foods in all shapes is popular, and many choose to get their own berry shrubs and fruit trees. In this book, the authors explain why you prune the different kinds of plants, how you do, but also if you have to. To grow buckthorn or to trellis an apple tree demands different knowledge on pruning.
This book tells you what plants in the garden shops works best to grow where, as well as for the higher zones. With help through step-by-step instructions and Eva Rönnbloms clear illustrations you can easily start pruning yourself.
