Books Info:

The Gardener's Guide to Propagation free pdf This title offers step-by-step instructions for creating plants for free, from propagating seeds and cuttings to dividing, layering and grafting. This is a complete practical guide to propagating your own flowers, trees, shrubs, climbers, wet-loving, bog and water plants, and vegetables and herbs. It covers all the standard techniques including sowing seed- taking cuttings- dividing plants- growing suckers and offsets- layering- creating extra bulbs, tubers and corms- and, grafting two plants together. There is an A-Z directory that lists 375 plants for propagating, describing each plant's size, colour and shape, where they are best grown, and how and when to propagate. This title includes advice about equipment, from specialist secateurs and garden knives to biodegradable pots and cold frames, as well as how to improve your soil and make compost. It is beautifully illustrated with over 1100 clear and informative photographs. The book begins with techniques for growing plants from seed. Next, there are instructions for taking cuttings from established plants and taking leaf and root cuttings - procedures that will save you a fortune. Dividing plants is equally easy and you can even transform suckers into separate plants and sever offsets and runners, giving a bigger crop next year. Once you have mastered the basics, layering couldn't be easier. And if you can't stop propagating, there's more on stooling, dropping and air layering, and a section on grafting. All the techniques are explained with step-by-step instructions and photographs throughout, with advice on preparation, potting up and aftercare. There is also a directory of over 375 plants, with propagating notes and growing tips.
