Not so many years ago everyone who had a garden propagated their own plants. Nowadays we are more inclined to nip down to the garden centre to buy anything from tiny cells of bedding plants to 3-metre climbers, but in fact most of the plants we grow in our gardens can be propagated with ease. Some of the techniques are almost foolproof, even for complete beginners; others are trickier, but all are readily achievable for the amateur gardener prepared to have a go. John Cushnie also gives detailed guidance on plant hygiene, temperature and humidity, timing and how to look after your newborn plants until they are ready to fend for themselves. How to Propagate is a much-loved bible on propagation that will be indispensable to beginners and committed enthusiasts alike.
