9780136792352: Hartmann and Kester's Plant Propagation: Principles and Practices (Book & CD)

For university-level courses in Plant Propagation. Some background in biology is assumed.

Hallmarked as the most successful text of its kind, this remarkably thorough book covers all aspects of the propagation of plants—both sexual and asexual—with considerable attention given to human (vs natural) efforts to increase plant numbers. The text presents both the art and science of propagation, and conveys knowledge of specific kinds of plants and the particular methods by which those plants must be propagated.
