This companion to Pruning (above) boasts equally intelligent organization, a quickly grasped text and expert drawings, with relevant parts colored here in red. In his introduction, garden writer Browse explains the logic behind plant propagation and assures readers a green thumb is not necessary for the task. Following the glossary, the author presents detailed directions for success in germinating seeds, layering, grafting and other methods as well as variations on the principle. There is coverage of virtually all steps involved from selecting equipment (such as a workbench of comfortable height) and fighting insects and diseases to caring for plants through development. Gardeners will find numerous suggestions for propagating flowers, berries, fruits, ornamental shrubs and trees. (March)
