5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Buy 4 July 2009
Verified Purchase
This is one of the best books that I have found that deals with small scale propagation in a green house. We do not all have huge gardens or walk in green houses depicted on the television. This book address the techniques needed for growing a variety of plants on whatever scale is available, so that we may all enjoy the pleasures of nurturing our own plants.

5.0 out of 5 stars Comprehensive and inspiring 24 Mar 2011
In recent weeks, I have acquired a number of books on greenhouses. Some of them merely give you drawings of different types of houses and teach you the principles (position, temperature considerations, water, electicity). Whereas this is all useful it was not really inspiring to me.
The book from RHS gives you a good overview of greenhouse gardening. In addition to that you get inspired. You feel confident and competent after having read this book.
So, if you want something that goes beyond technicalities you need not to search more, you have it here.

Ps. The explanation for the quality of this book you see whenever you visit one of the RHS gardens, where the combination of craftmanship and emotional wellbeing is brought to perfection.

4.0 out of 5 stars Serious approach 1 July 2011
By Nina
Verified Purchase
I bought this for a friend who was using a greenhouse for the first time. I thought I couldn't get any better and I'm sure that's perfectly true. The trouble is, I think the approach is a bit more serious than she would have liked so perhaps it's not for the person who wants to potter away and just watch things grow - without getting too technical! Great book for the serious grower.
