The Propagation of Hardy Perennials Richard Bird

The Propagation of Hardy Perennials - Richard Bird

B. T. Batsford, 1993, Hardback in Dust Wrapper.
Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Leans slightly.

Illustrated with colour photographs & line drawings. From the cover: “This book shows the gardener how to propagate a wide range of hardy plants for the flower garden. In the first part it deals with basic techniques; and then the author goes on to discuss the plants genus by genus, with information about different species where there is any variation in propagation methods. This second part is particularly important as there has never before been a systematic treatment of all the genera the gardener is likely to meet.

The plants included are very wide ranging, including many rare and even obscure plants as well as a number of shrubby, annual and biennial plants not strictly considered as hardy perennials, but frequently grown alongside them.

Little has been written about the propagation of individual plants and yet the accumulated knowledge of gardeners past and present is enormous. This book is a distillation of that knowledge, a vital basis for the personal acquisition of more experience for both amateur and professional gardeners at all levels.”
