Creative Pruning

If you are looking for cross over of knowledge this is an excellent book that provides details on techniques used in garden sized tree pruning which is also transferable to that of bonsai.

It follows on from the first book by Jake Hobson called ‘Niwaki’ and expands on the ideas initially broached in the earlier book but provides further insights into the origins of these designs and shapes plus how to achieve them. There are some excellent photographic examples of Niwaki and topiary plus amazingly shaped hedges and shrubs that are in some cases quite mind blowing as they are stunning to behold.
