Customer Review

on December 30, 2011
This book is so practical and uses clear photographs
and illustrations that show you exactly what to look
for and do. I've read it all from cover to cover, and
I wish more reference books were this easy to use and
understand.

I also like the addendum material in the back that
tells the best methods to propagate the most common plants.
The only immprovement I'd suggest is that instead
of listing the plants by their latin names, (which
is common in the plant world) that the common names be listed too.
It would just be nice to look up "Japanese Maples" and not have to
research to find "Acer Palmatum". This is, however, a minor item when
you consider the excellent value of this work as a whole.

I especially like how each propagation method has an
executive summary style of presentation, and
generally in the space of two pages you know what to do, step
by step with pictures.

With this book as my main reference guide,
I've successfully propagated blueberry plants from seed,
blueberries from cuttings, blackberries from root cuttings,
azaleas using intermittent misting, and now I'm trying
hardwood cuttings over the wintertime. (fingers crossed and
with Miranda's help)

If you want to know all you can about plant propagation in
an easy understandable format, this is an invaluable
reference tool. I try to borrow most books from the library,
but good reference books are something I want to own.
This is a GREAT reference book. You won't regret owning it.
