This book makes either an excellent teaching resource or a good personal reference book. I got it for teaching horticulture to my niece and ended up spending hours reading for my own personal benefit! There is one drawback. In the early pages of the book, reference is made to additional material (for teaching) which can be obtained from the Pearson's website. This material is NOT available to anyone who does not purchase the book through that website. However, when my sister attempted to purchase 1 copy of the book through the aforementioned website, there was no way to do so. Therefore, in effect, this supplemental material is NOT available to anyone who is NOT teaching in an accredited college...although the book could be taught to someone at the Junior and senior level of high school! In fact, I spent over 5 hours on the phone (being transferred from one department to another) before being told (on the website)that, although the supplemental material is available to home-schooling parents) that, in reality, it is NOT available!

If you are looking for an excellent book on horticulture, this is an excellent resource. If you are looking for an excellent textbook on the subject, it is also excellent. However, you must be prepared to go it on your own with the book as you will get NO HELP from Pearson's!

Practical Horticulture 7th edition continues to be the required tool for all educators and plant lovers. This edition, like previous versions, takes learning about plants and plant processes to a new level. All ages will benefit from the experience of Laura Rice in communicating this often misunderstood subject.

I got a new book from amazon for less money than the used copy at my school bookstore. The textbook is fine, it would be better with brighter pictures

Sent as a gift to son studying horticulture. He's not yet spent time with the book, but it appeared to be oe of the most complete books on the subject.

Book was not in as great of condition as I thought it would be...When I opened the book, a few pages basically fell out because they were barely attached to the spine anymore.

The binding is not holding up, I've only had it approx. 6wks and the binding at the bottom of the book is pulling away. Paid a lot of money for this book, new. Disappointed.

I was very happy as this book was perfect for my Horticulture Science class even though it was an older edition!
