Propagation, Cultivation and Use in Landscaping.
Fully Revised and Updated Fourth Edition.
When first published in 1979, this book was greeted with immediate and resounding acclaim. The wealth of sound, practical advice and the superb illustrations provided both the amateur and professional horticulturist with a complete guide to all aspects of the propagation and cultivation of the thousands of native plants recognised as suitable for growing in large and small gardens.
This new fourth edition offers readers even more by increasing the number of colour plates to 500, by including more than 170 line drawings, and interspersing both throughout the text. Descriptions of over 360 new species and cultivars have been added.
Hundreds of name changes have occurred since the previous edition and these have been included, together with advances in horticultural research that have enabled more species to be grown in home gardens.
The identification and control of pests and diseases, the selection of the right plant for a particular location, and the planning and landscaping of home gardens are all subjects that are well covered.
This is the most comprehensive and accurate volume produced on the subject and an indispensable reference for everyone interested in growing native plants anywhere in Australia.
