This illustrated guide to pruning fruit trees and soft fruit aims to take the mystery out of pruning, showing how the correct training of trees and shrubs improves both their fruiting capacity and their shape, resulting in more produce and a tidier garden. Fruit trees can be trained into a variety of shapes, from poles to fans, and they can be grown as free-standing trees or trained against walls or fences, or even planted in pots. The book also covers cane fruits such as raspberries and blackberries, and bush fruits such as currants and gooseberries.
