The Complete Book of Plant Propagation reveals how simple and satisfying propagating your own plants can be. A general introduction explains when and why propagation is necessary, then twelve horticultural experts discuss different groups of plants individually, from alpines, herbaceous perennials and ferns to conifers and heathers, herbs, trees and shrubs, and houseplants. Throughout the book individual plants are the main focus, with all appropriate propagation methods discussed in detail and clarified by sequences of straightforward, step-by-step drawings. Tips and practical advice are accompanied by inspirational ideas for using your new-found knowledge. Have you considered espaliered rosemary, for example, or propagating shrubs for a garden of ornamental topiary? At the end of each chapter there is an all-inclusive A-Z list of plants for quick and easy reference. Easy-to-read symbols tell you essential information at a glance: how long seed will take to germinate and how quickly the plant reaches maturity. The plants are assessed individually, with advice on the best propagation methods to use and extra tips to ensure success.
