"With her reader-friendly, easy-to-follow directions, a veteran horticulture teacher demonstrates all the ways to cultivate new plants-whether from seed or cuttings or with techniques such as layering, grafting, and budding. Creating new plants from existing ones is one of the most rewarding aspects of gardening. But to many, the idea of propagating plants seems like a feat that only the most experienced gardeners can master. The Plant Propagator's Bible strips away the mystique and makes multiplying plants easy even for the novice. Drawing on her many years as a horticulture teacher, Miranda Smith explains the natural process and conditions in which plants grow and reproduce, and shows gardeners how to use these systems to propagate any plant that grows in their garden or greenhouse-or even on their windowsill. The book features: an A to Z directory of more than 1,000 individual plant species-with appropriate propagation techniques for aquatics, ornamental plants, houseplants, shrubs, trees, vegetables, and wildflowers; "What Can Go Wrong" advice for each type of plant, explaining potential problems and how to prevent or fix them; detailed, step-by-step illustrations and annotated photographs; including information on essential tools and equipment, this is an indispensable addition to every gardener's bookshelf."--The publisher.
