This essential practical guide aims to take the mystery out of pruning - a gardening task which many gardeners mistakenly believe to be difficult and complicated. It simplifies the job, showing that the correct pruning and training of ornamental and fruiting plants is both easy and also has many rewards, including improved flower and fruit production, healthier plants, improved plant shape, and a tidier garden. Opening with a helpful introduction, which covers basic principles and techniques, useful tools and equipment, and safety considerations, the chapters that follow are arranged by plant type, covering trees, shrubs, climbers and wall shrubs, and roses. Each chapter includes practical advice, illustrated with step-by-step photographic sequences and artworks, on the initial training of the plant type in question; how to prune the plant once it is established; and how to undertake renovation pruning. There is also information on specialized pruning and training techniques, such as pruning for ornamental stems, pleaching, pollarding and coppicing. An invaluable A-Z Directory of Ornamental Plants looks at the pruning requirements of a wide range of species on a plant-by-plant basis, explaining when and how to prune. A Fruit section contains chapters on pruning and training tree fruits, including hardy apples and pears, and tender tree fruits, such as olive trees and citrus fruits. There is also a chapter on soft fruit, which covers cane fruit, such as blackberries and raspberries, and bush fruit, including blackcurrants and gooseberries. The books is lavishly illustrated with over 700 inspirational and practical photographs as well as more than 270 specially-commissioned artworks and illustrations. All techniques and projects are shown in close-up step-by-step photography and diagrams to ensure that the tasks are absolutely clear and easy to follow, and making this the only book on the subject that any gardener will ever need.

Author: Clifford D. Simak
Publisher: Open Road Media
From the Nebula Award–winning author of Way Station: Ten stories—including one never before published—of mystery and imagination in a world that cannot be. People work; folk play. That is how it has been in this country for as long as Sam can remember. He is happy, and he understands that this is the way it should be. People are bigger than folk. They are stronger. They do not need food or water. They do not need the warmth of a fire. All they need are jobs to do and a blacksmith to fix them when they break. The people work so the folk can drink their moonshine, fish a little, and throw horseshoes. But once Sam starts to wonder why the world is like this, his life will never be the same. Along with the other stories in this collection, “I Am Crying All Inside” is a compact marvel—a picture of an impossible reality that is not so different from our own. Also included in this volume is the newly published “I Had No Head and My Eyes Were Floating Way Up in the Air,” originally written for Harlan Ellison’s The Last Dangerous Visions.™ Each story includes an introduction by David W. Wixon, literary executor of the Clifford D. Simak estate and editor of this ebook.

Laurel Collingsworth-Davis thought she had everything she could ever want: a beautiful home, a fulfilling career, financial security and a devoted husband. However, at the beginning of their marriage, she and Matt--each for their own private reasons--had agreed to never have children. When her grandmother dies, Laurel realizes that she does, in fact, want to be a mother. She desperately needs Matt to reconsider his position, but when he refuses, she fears her storybook life may be over. Matt Davis has very real reasons for not wanting to become a father; reasons he's never shared with Laurel. Now he realizes that in order to get her to understand, he may have to reveal more of himself to her than he's ever revealed to anyone. But doing that may very well cost him his marriage regardless. Will Laurel and Matt be able to trust God to help them overcome the seemingly insurmountable obstacles that stand in the way of them staying a family? Or will their fears drive them apart and end the marriage that had seemed so perfect?
