To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Where has it been all my life? This is the most informative book about propagation I have come across. I now feel confident, with the clear instructions relating to the various methods of propagation, to attempt anything in this field.
This arrived in good condition, and I appreciate the speedy delivery.
This is a large hardback book crammed with information, ranging from straightforward and simple to more in depth. I really like it. If you can't find the information you need in this book then you are probably trying to propagate Lego.....
Definitely recommend. I hope you find this review helpful, thanks for reading.
I bought this on abit if a whim, just added onto another order. It is absolutely the best gardening book I own. Perfect! Full of useful information, easily accessible and inspiring. I want to propagate plants and know it’s not as complicated as articles in magazines make it. This book explains everything very simply and in a few sentences. Highly recommend this to everyone who has a beginners interest in propagating twigs, leaves and roots!
I found that the book lacked detail on individual species and that there are just tables on some pages with different plants with no individual explanation as to how to Propogate them. Another book to gather dust on the shelf
RHS books are always very good and this is no exception. Excellent reference book with details of propagation for hundreds of plants. Well laid out, clear photos. Beginners to experienced gardeners would find it useful. Every gardener in my family now has a copy (also the others in this series are well worth having).
This book is superb and full of information; it is also reasonably priced. Unfortunately the book was sent in a box that was too big for it and had subsequently been free to fly to and fro inside it resulting in some damage to the spine - not much but not what you expect to see on a 'new' book.
I love this book even when there is no much difference with the previous edition. I would like some more recent pictures but that doesn’t take away the quality of the book for me it is a must have book for any gardener or student.
This is a very useful reference book but I really hate both the typeface and the size of the font which seems very small and cramped. It’s difficult to read comfortably and so I don’t use it as often as I had anticipated. I’ve found this problem with the Botany for Gardeners book as well, unnecessarily small print.
Great book with absolutely tons of information on everything you are likely to need to know about propagating new plants. Comes highly recommended from someone who has won four gardening competitions!!
