About this book

Practical guide to the successful propagation of all garden plants - from trees and shrubs to culinary herbs.
`Too good to be true is one's immediate reaction on examining this touchstone book, which puts others on the topic into the propagative dust. Over 1800 spectacular photos by Peter Anderson presented in the usual clear DK style sparkle throughout the book. An excellent 40-page introduction precedes the 262-page heart of the book that deals with seven broad groups of plants: garden trees; shrubs and climbers; perrenials; annuals and bienniels; cacti and other succulents; bulbous plants; veggies - in all over 1500 taxa described in A-Z sequence within each group.' Rudolf Schmid, Taxon.
