Well, OK, mine is the 1978 version of this little Ortho book with basic text and research by Charles Deaton and Michael MacCaskey. I picked it up years ago and I've referred to it every spring and fall since. It must be pretty good if they are still producing a version of it in 1999 and later.

As with most essential Ortho books, this one presents an encyclopedic overview of garden pruning in a concise and useable format. The author addresses espalier technique, pruning berry bushes (five kinds), and how to revive old and neglected roses, just to get you started.

A wonderful little book. If you see it at a garage sale, pick it up!
