About this book

Covers annuals, perennials, bulbs, trees, shrubs, and conifers, and seems to be as popular among plant enthusiasts as among growers. The author stresses that the key to propagating is understanding how plants behave and then providing optimum conditions.

Peter Thompson's brilliant book makes the important point that successful propagation has less to do with expensive equipment than understanding how different plants respond to their environment. - Anna Pavord, The Independent
