Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

R.J. Garner's The Grafter's Handbook is the classic reference book and revered encyclopedia (and the only one of its kind) on plant propagation by grafting, and has been favored by orchardists and gardeners since its first publication in 1947. Now revised and updated for a new generation by respected horticulturist Steve Bradley, the all-time classic is back and better than ever.Everything the dedicated amateur, student, and professional horticulturalist wants to know about grafting is here, clearly written in a concise and straightforward style, the distillation of a lifetime's careful study and research. Chapters include information on compatilibility and cambial contact; rootstocks and their propagation; tools and accessories; methods of grafting; and grafting established trees.Praise for earlier editions:"Mr. Garner almost certainly knows more about vegetative propagation of tree and bush fruit than any man on earth; and what is more to the purpose, he knows how to convey his knowledge clearly in word and line."--The Guardian"This is not only a masterly textbook illustrated with very clear line drawings and photographs, but also a fascinating anthology of all the ways in which man has found it possible, for one reason or another, to put two varieties of plants together to make one."--Country Life

About the Author

Robert John Garner was born in Fulbourn, Cambridge, in 1907. A scientist at the former East Malling Research Station from 1926 until 1972, he became an international authority on the vegetative propagation of woody plants. He was awarded an honorary MSc from the University of Reading in 1951 and the Veitch Memorial Medal by the Royal Horticultural Society for his outstanding contribution to the advancement of the art, science, and practice of horticulture in 1980.Former president of the Horticultural Education Association and the Great Britain and Ireland region of the International Plant Propagators' Society and the author of The Propagation of Tropical Fruit Trees (1976), Garner also wrote numerous research papers for technical journals including The Journal of Horticultural Science and CBB's Technical Communications series published by the Imperial Bureau of Horticulture and Plantation Crops. After his death in 1993, East Malling Research Station opened the Robert Garner Laboratory in remembrance of his life's work.
