This book was used by my plant propagation teacher while I was at the university. It explains the basic principles of plant propagation in detail. All the information is back-up by scientific data. Very good for the professional grower or a plant science student; not very appropriate for the common gardener.

A very informative book with many examples of plant species and their specific propagation requirements. Very detailed but also useful for the beginning propagationist. Great chapters on tissue culture.

This is a good reference book but you need a lot of technical knowledge prior to using it. It is written on college level and a biology and chemistry background is necessary to really use it. I liked the information included and will use this for years.

I agree with the consensus that this text is the 'bible of plant husbandry'. But what made this product even more flawless for me, is that the earlier editions (like the one I acquired 'used' & that is the subject of this review) have the bulk of the information that the most recent edition has, but at a third of the cost!
