Publisher Comments:

With her reader-friendly, easy-to-follow directions, a veteran horticulture teacher demonstrates all the ways to cultivate new plants--whether from seed or cuttings or with techniques such as layering, grafting, and budding

Creating new plants from existing ones is one of the most rewarding aspects of gardening. But to many, the idea of propagating plants seems like a feat that only the most experienced gardeners can master. The Plant Propagator's Bible strips away the mystique and makes multiplying plants easy even for the novice.

Drawing on her many years as a horticulture teacher, Miranda Smith explains the natural process and conditions in which plants grow and reproduce, and shows gardeners how to use these systems to propagate any plant that grows in their garden or greenhouse--or even on their windowsill. The book features:

• an A to Z directory of more than 1,000 individual plant species--with appropriate propagation techniques for aquatics, ornamental plants, houseplants, shrubs, trees, vegetables, and wildflowers

• "What Can Go Wrong" advice for each type of plant, explaining potential problems and how to prevent or fix them

• detailed, step-by-step illustrations and annotated photographs

Including information on essential tools and equipment, this is an indispensable addition to every gardener's bookshelf.

Synopsis:

With her reader-friendly, easy-to-follow directions, a veteran horticulture teacher demonstrates all the ways to cultivate new plants--whether from seed or cuttings or with techniques such as layering, grafting, and budding.

One hundred and ninety two pages of great plant propagation tips to help you increase your plant collection. I have purchased this book and used it in my greenhouse to make new plants out of my old plants. Using their easy to understand techniques and guidelines, I have found this book to be very reliable and useful.
It has a plant directory giving plant common name, Latin name, propagation methods from easiest to additional methods. They also inform us of potential problems to be aware of. It has great pictures and diagrams incase you need a better understanding of the information presented. There's a plant list in the back of the book to help you find specific plants you are working with. If you are a gardener looking for a resource to increase your plant population, you can't go wrong with this excellent book by Miranda Smith. I use it frequently as a reference with great success using their techniques.
