Learn more about pruning with this e-book.
Pruning mystifies many people. Some people never prune plants and still expect them to perform their best others constantly have a pair of pruners in their hands! Some plants do perfectly well without pruning. Fruit trees are pruned to improve fruit size, to contain them and make harvesting easier and to encourage light and air through the plant which discourages fungal disease.
