How to Propagate: Techniques and Tips for Over 1,000 Plants Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Almost all modern home gardeners run to a nursery at the start of every new growing season and stock up on perennials, maple saplings, and shrubs—but they don't have to. Propagating ones own plants is far from a difficult gardening feat, and it can be an exhilarating gardening accomplishment. The propagation techniques explained in this guide make it easy to propagate many common plants. Detailed information on plant hygiene, temperature and humidity, and the care of newborn plants up to planting time will round out a budding propagators knowledge, and get them started on the road to home-grown success.

Book News Annotation:

Cushnie reminds us that most people propagated their own plants in the not so distant past. For amateur gardeners ready to take the next step beyond planting purchased stock, this veteran plant propagator presents step-by-step directions and tips for tried-and- true techniques for rooting bedding plants, perennials, shrubs, and even trees. Good plant hygiene is emphasized in the chapter on pest and disease control. The guide includes a color-illustrated directory of plants with several propagation methods (icons mark his and the easiest ones), and a glossary.
