This new edition of a core text for students of horticulture is welcomed. The addition of colour plates is helpful and the layout has generally improved. I think the book does a difficult job well as the subject is huge and it must be very difficult to decide what to leave out and how much depth to go to. I'm hoping it will help me with the RHS Advanced Cerificate exam.

4.0 out of 5 stars Useful book 22 Dec 2011
By Puzzle crazy TOP 500 REVIEWER
This book was really useful when i was doing my City and Guilds horticulture course. There aren't many pictures in the book apart from a small colour section in the centre, but there are some fascinating chapters covering a whole range of topics such as genetics, plant growth, pests, plant development and soil and plant nutrition. A great reference book, but not really suitable if you are just loking for a general gardening book, as it is primarily for study.
