Sad 18 Nov 2010
By Ronald A LaFond - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I'm stuck using this book in my Plant Propagation class. I'm appalled by the price - and for a paperback book. I really hate having to do that to my students. I'm hoping they've cleaned up the text since the 7th edition. In the 7th edition I found repeated text. The book was obviously edited and reedited and in the process text was duplicated. I felt like I was reading in circles. The book is a bit over the top for undergraduate studies. I'm using it for community college work.

Great text for undergrad and graduate reference. 11 Nov 2013
By joseph davis - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I started using this book during my undergrad and as a grad student I keep on using it. It is a great reference for new professionals, as of writing this I am still working on my M.S. in Agronomy&Horticulture and I find that I most frequently reference back to this book when I need to get accurate and concise information. It does cost a lot as others have mentioned, and for a hobbyist I think it would be way too much. But for my situation I find it to be invaluable.

A must have for every one who want's to propagte plants 3 Nov 2013
By Raanan Kovesh - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
A great book for someone who is looking for an up to date information about propagation methods . Very informative, with lot's of diagrams, pictures etc. One can tell that the authors did a very serious work in this book,and I think it's a must have for every one who is interested in propgating plants. The only thing I would have changed is to make it a hard cover instead of paperback

Great book for the serious gardener 13 Feb 2013
By Keith Symes - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The book is still the gold standard for propagation; an excellent reference and working guide.

The only concern is the durability of the book itself the cover isn't as tough as I would like - getting a good quality plastic sleeve on it would be good.
