There's no doubt that
these two books are "must-haves" for the serious gardener. They're
exhaustive manuals - new paperback editions of twin titles published
under the Royal Horticultural Society banner seven years ago.
Both are clearly set
out, with introductory chapters giving all you need to know about
the basics of both subjects. They share a practical A-Z approach;
Propagating Plants has more than 1500 individual plant entries
and unique tips from expert propagators.
In Pruning and Training,
clear step-by-step illustrations show exactly where to make pruning
cuts. The book details special techniques such as coppicing, topiary
and pergola-training. Great companion volumes for Christmas.
