Pruning Fruit Trees

Author : Kath Irvine

This is the grown up version of the funny little pruning book Kath Irvine cobbled together a few years ago. A bit of a cringe, in hindsight, but that little book is what got her here. That and Fern Publishing. Together they've gone over and over her writing. Every word has been weighed up. Order and structure and tense challenged. They've walked the line between tidying up her terrible grammar, and retaining her quirky ways. Pruning Fruit Trees has been a big extra to life. The house is super dusty and please don't look in the oven, but it's been worth it. Her focus is on helping beginners, but she also hopes to give experienced pruners new eyes for trees. Calm trees is her overall aim. A less is more approach to cutting with a focus on training as well as pruning. This doesn't mean wild, woolly things that need ladders compact and productive are my guiding lights.
