This is the definitive practical guide to pruning fruit trees and soft fruit. It is lavishly illustrated with over 350 inspirational and practical colour photographs, as well as over 90 specially commissioned artworks. It includes popular fruits such as apples, pears and raspberries, as well as more unusual species like quinces, figs and cranberries. A useful directory provides essential information about the best varieties of fruit to grow. This practical guide to pruning fruit trees and soft fruit shows how the correct training of trees and shrubs improves both their fruiting capacity and their shape, resulting in more produce and a tidier garden. The first section of the book looks at fruit trees, which can be trained into a variety of shapes, from poles to fans. In the second section of the book, cane fruits such as raspberries and blackberries, and bush fruits such as currants and gooseberries are dealt with. This is the only book on pruning fruiting plants that a gardener will ever need.
