"Pruning Horrors and Pruning Micro-course"
is a 2 hour video revealing the three most common
forms of bad pruning: tree-topping, stripping (non-selective overthinning
or skirting of trees and shrubs), and inappropriate shearing. (In some gardens,
shearing is appropriate for some types of plant species.) The definitions
of some commonly copied forms of pruning art such as topiary, Japanese cloud
pruning, and pollarding are also covered. The show's last section, titled
"The Good, The Bad, and the Bizarre", provides examples of general interest.
Popular with garden clubs and horticulture classes, the video is designed
to amuse as it educates.
