This manual aims to dispel the mystique that surrounds propagating by revealing how simple and satisfying this integral part of gardening can be.

The introduction explains when and why propagation is necessary. Twelve horticultural experts discuss groups of plants individually, from alpines, perennials and ferns, to conifers and heathers, herbs, trees and shrubs, and house plants.

The focus is on individual plants, with appropriate propagation methods for each discussed in detail and illustrated with drawings.

At the end of each chapter is an A-Z list of plants. Symbols are used for essential information, such as how long seed takes to germinate and how long before plants mature.
