Review

This book unwraps the mystery of the how and why of botany at a level we can understand.

A book such as this should be in every workshop, potting shed and mess room. [This review refers to the first edition]

If you ever wanted to know why a plant reacts the way it does, this book is for you. [This review refers to the first edition]

[This] is an instructional, scientific text written specifically in everyday language for gardeners, horticulturists, and lay people.

Written for those who would like to do more than simply 'get by' with intuitive knowledge about plants. [This review refers to the first edition]

Those who enjoy and are fascinated by plants and gardening, would enjoy them even more with the help of this book. [This review refers to the first edition]

This is a reference that should be on the desk of everyone interested in plants. [This review refers to the first edition] -- Ann Milovsoroff "Pappus" (01/28/2003)

With its many color photographs, its discursive style, and its comprehensive glossary, "Botany for Gardeners" is a joy to read. [This review refers to the first edition]

This is a book that you will want to keep in your horticultural library for future reference. -- George Graine "Virginia Master Gardeners Association Report" (02/21/2005)

I highly recommend this book ... Learning new things would be such a pleasure if we had more such books. [This review refers to the first edition] -- Barbara Joe Hoshizaki "Fiddlehead Forum" (03/07/2003)

What happens inside a seed after it is planted?How are plants structured?How do plants adapt to their environment?How is water transported from soil to leaves?Why are minerals, air, and light important for healthy plant growth?How do plants reproduce?The answers to these and other questions about complex plant processes, written in everyday language, allow gardeners and horticulturists to understand plants "from the plant's point of view."A best-seller since its debut in 1990, "Botany for Gardeners has now been expanded and updated, and includes an appendix on plant taxonomy and a comprehensive index. Two dozen new photos and illustrations make this new edition even more attractive than its predecessor.
