Pruning and Propagating for the Indoor Gardener
by Charles M. Evans
Publisher: Random House
Have you ever wished you knew how to take a cutting from a friend's beautiful plant and make one for yourself? And what about your bare and leggy old dracaena -- wouldn't you like to make two attractive plants out of it, or even a dozen?
Here at last is a book that answers questions like these for the house-plant lover. New Plants from Old shows you how to give new life to your plant collection, by pruning and propagating -- and also how to save flowerpots of money.
Step-by-step instructions and attractive line drawings explain all the secrets of reproducing your plants from seeds, from leaf, stem or root cuttings, or from runners and offshoots. Special techniques like layering and division are described in such detail that any indoor gardener will be able to accomplish these more complex procedures.
The section on pruning explains how to remove branches and leaves from your plants to shape, strengthen and stimulate them, as well as how to rejuvenate and recondition straggly old or sick plnts by performing drastic surgery on foliage and roots.
