Have a prized plant and want a bunch more just like it? Propagation with cuttings is the answer. Unlike plants grown from seed, a plant started as a cutting will have the identical characteristics and appearance of the original. And anyone can successfully grow perennials, shrubs, and even large trees from cuttings with these cultivation secrets. Designed for gardeners of all abilities, the information here begins with selecting and using tools, then provides tips for employing rooting hormones, special planting mediums, and advanced propagation methods. The text is backed with 150 color photographs illustrating the techniques. Garden pests, hardening off, sun scorch, and other challenges are also discussed, for a complete education in successful propagation.

Synopsis:

Growing plants and vegetables from seed is among the most rewarding things a gardener can do. Anyone can successfully grow lush, vibrant plants with the helpful information and gardening techniques found here. Beginners will appreciate the easy-to-follow instructions, while experienced gardeners will value the host of special tips and tricks, as well as the more than 150 color photographs. Whether your interest is trees and shrubs, annual or perennial flowers, bulbs, houseplants, or vegetables, youll get great results every time. Youll find the best ways to choose viable seeds, how to harvest seeds for your next crop, ways to avoid animal damage, and proper seed storage techniques.

Synopsis:

This practical book offers advice on basic techniques as well as some of the more advanced and challenging propagation methods.
