Revue de presse

An unexpectedly entertaining book about the art of training and shaping trees and shrubs to add form and drama to the garden. What could have been quite a dull and repetitive subject is given pace and light by Jake Hobson's engaging prose and his expert knowledge of the subject [...] This book is a mixture of the inspirational and the practical, with at times jaw-dropping examples of just how far the art of topiary can go... it is clear that the only limit to what can be achieved is the imagination of the person wielding the clippers. --Gardens Illustrated, Stephanie Donaldson

...full of pictures of greenery that is quite arresting, sometimes hilarious and odd, but always evocative and likely to draw opinion... This book is fascinating, something different, and very interesting. --The English Garden, Stephanie Mahon

The Art of Creative Pruning is full of fab photos and detailed instructions on how to tackle all sorts of severe horticultural reshaping. --The Independent, Emma Townshend

Like a postmodernist manifesto, this joyous book offers a fresh and lively perspective on an ancient craft that might have become tired and stereotypical. --The Garden (October Issue), Andi Clevely

The Art of Creative Pruning is full of fab photos and detailed instructions on how to tackle all sorts of severe horticultural reshaping. --The Independent, Emma Townshend

Présentation de l'éditeur

In this book, author Jake Hobson outlines an approach that is more creative than traditional topiary and positively encourages out-of-the-box thinking. Instead of peacocks and rabbits you will see boxwood shaped to reveal a row of Russian dolls and hedges carved with graffiti. Innovatively photographed works in formal gardens around the world are presented here alongside well illustrated step-by-step projects, encouraging you immediately to pick up some pruners and begin to experiment with this creative, therapeutic form of garden art.

Broad specialty pruning manual 19 juin 2012
Par Aralia - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
This is a wonderful review of specialized European pruning techniques--some with detailed instructions. All have beautiful pictures. However, Hobson's other book on Japanese pruning techniques, is the better book if one wants to do "cloud pruning".

awesome book 10 juin 2014

finally a book that tells you something and gives you great ideas. While somewhat of a how to, its more a "how to look at opportunities" kind of book. I liked the balance, I liked the tools suggestions. I'm very pleased I bought this book.

Ugly Is Not An Option 11 mars 2012
Par sugarpiehoney - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
If plants are not maintained they have two possible outcomes. Ugly or dead. For plants, dead is better.
Then perhapsy you'll drag it out of the yard rather than let it slowly rot away, offending
the neighbors.
Hedges hold a top place on the ugly list. Most--really, MOST-- should be whacked down to the ground
and religiously and carefully pruned to full and enticing shape for years. Years!
And then it isn't ugly. It's boring.
But it doesn't have to be.
Change can happen.
Beauty, or whimsy, or majesty are all yours for the making. Clip a collection of scowling thugs.
Write your name in a living green wall. Create lines that sinuously curve across the earth as
though they were, well, alive. The photos show what you could do, the writer tells you how
to do it. The many pictures are beautiful, the writer can write. Prepare to be inspired. And
consumed. And activated as though someone pushed your ON button.
I love this book.
Creative and Tortured Pruning 1 mai 2015
Par Georgia Peach - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
I wanted more hedge trimming pictures, more creative shapes. The pages devoted to this were beautiful and inspiring. But, many pages show pollarded, tortured, topped out trees with narly knuckles and no green leaves. This form of pruning is very unsightly - I just don't get it, but if this is what you want, this is the book for you. The author goes into great detail and shows many examples of extreme pruning. For some it is considered an art and you will find many examples here.

Have been a fan of topiaries for a long time. I am impressed with this beautiful book. Lots of inspiration and information, beautifully styled and photographed. If you like shaping and pruning your garden this is the book for you!
