Summary:
This is the first, and still the most thorough, book to detail and illustrate essential practices of perennial care such as deadheading, pinching, cutting back, thinning, disbudding, and deadleafing. Of equal value is the A-to-Z encyclopedia of important perennial species, which clearly discusses the pruning and maintenance needs of each plant.
