    An Ideal Present for any Gardener!

    Making More Plants, The Science, Art, and Joy of Propagation by Ken Druse, is fun to read, interesting and is a very useful book. Plant propagation (starting new plants) is a subject that sooner or later becomes an interest of almost every serious gardener. There is a certain magic about taking one plant and then turning it into many new ones. There is a real joy to be found in starting your own plants from seed, instead of just going to a nursery and buying them in six packs. Making More Plants covers a lot of ground and would be equally of interest to gardeners in zone 3, as it would to those in warm zone 10. Many books on horticulture are mostly fluff, and once read they are never opened again. Making More Plants is just the opposite, a book that will be used over and over again. Even the experienced gardener, who is already well-versed in plant propagation, will find this book handy. Starting your own new plants adds much fun and satisfaction to gardening and with this book it will certainly be much easier to understand. Many excellent illustrations here too. Highly recommended.
