A new book by Kath Irvine:

Here she is my labour of love,”Pruning Fruit Trees: A Beginners Guide.”

I know how pruning worries you and ties you in knots, so I’ve created a concise guide. Small was my brief here, because home gardeners don’t need a tome! You guys need a simple understanding and a clear set of instructions. I managed to get it down to A5, and a mere 76 pages. She’s small enough to read in one sitting and take with you when you prune.
