The Pruning Answer Book: Solutions to Every Problem You'll Ever Face **GIVEAWAY**

I leave for New York City this week. I'm scared. I've been to NYC before, just never by myself.  I am so excited to be attending Book Expo America and Book Blogger Convention.  So, in celebration of these events, I will be posting book reviews all week!  So, if you are one of my friends who could care less about my book reviews, hang tight, I'll be back with my normal nonsense next week.  Thanks for all the support lately. You guys are the best.

Oh I so need this book. We bought my husbands grandmothers home several years ago and she had all these beautiful roses and bushes that I do not know how to take care of. Have a blast in NYC!!

we live on just a little quarter acre city lot, but have LOTS of trees! The original owners must not have realized all those cute little trees they planted would grow! Sure could use this book.

Excellent review...I'm pruning impaired so it sounds like it would be quite useful to me.

I so need this book! I have a bunch of different type of rose bushes and I don't know exactly how and when to prune them. Could also use the information on pruning hydrangeas, a lilac bush that doesn't bloom much, my azalea bushes... I even have this climbing plant with little red seeds that show up after it blooms that I need to identify and then prune.
I landed on your blog when looking for info on painting patio furniture. I love your idea about the body shop so I will call Maaco first thing tomorrow. Love some of your tutorials too.
I will keep my fingers crossed that I will win the Punning book.
Keep up the good work on your blog!!

I desperately need this book. I know I have things growing that need pruning but I don't know what they are and if I did, I wouldn't know where to begin!:)
