looking for pruning and plant website

Hello all, I am looking for a website on pruning and info on flowers (just basic info, best times to prune, best methods for certain plants, plant needs, etc) The more simple and with pictures the better. Looking for very basic. Any favorites? Thank you.

Jeff

Orhto books puts out a real good book on this subject. The Book is called All About Pruning and I have found it at Home Depot. Its a great reference manual to have in the truck.

thanks! I will check that out as well. Saw something like that at Boarders the other day. I liked it but didn't want to spend the money on it just yet.

if you are looking into books as well as the web, try 'the pruner's bible'. it gives you specific info on a wide range of plants. many plants have specific needs & the book does a real good job of illustrating the differences.
