As many gardeners know, Catharine Osgood Foster has a wonderful knack for getting right to the heart of any gardening subject, and here in her latest book she gets right to the basics of propagating plants.  In her familiar, easy style, Ms. Foster helps you discover firsthand the fascinating biological processes that enable a plant to generate a whole new plant from any one of its cells and how its possible for some plants to produce as many as a million seeds a year.

In Plants-a-Plenty the principles of propagation and patterns of natural that effect them are woven around the many techniques of multiplying plants.  The book is desiged for doing and for people who want to increase or improve the plants they now have by simple methods like germinating seeds and spores and taking cuttings from the mother plant, or by more delicate processes like grafting a young, desirable plant to a mature, healthy stock.

Plants-a-Plenty is divided into two parts to make initial reading enjoyable and future reference use more convenient for you.  Part I is heavily illustrated and filled with step-by-step directions and background information so that you have both words and accompanying drawings and photographs to guide you through any propagation project.  Part II, which is arranged alphabetically under plant categories, discusses each plant individually, highlighting special considerations and suggesting to you those propagation techniques that are most successful for each plant.

Plants-a-Plenty is by far the best and most complete book available for indoor and outdoor gardeners on the propagation of house and greenhouse plants, garden vegetables, tree and vine fruits, flowers, shrubs, and trees.
