About this book

Most of the plants we grow in our gardens can be propagated with ease. Some of the techniques are almost foolproof, even for complete beginners; others are a bit more tricky, but all are readily achievable for the amateur gardener prepared to have a go, accept the occasional failure and revel in the triumphs. In addition to the techniques themselves, the author gives detailed guidance on plant hygiene, temperature and humidity, timing and how to look after your newborn plants until they are ready to go out into the garden and fend for themselves.
