The better we understand how plants work, the easier it will be to grow them well. This book sets out to help you do just that by explaining the scientific basis of gardening. Professor Jones describes the structure of garden plants, how to recognize where a particular plant will grow best, and how to look after plants in terms of planting, pruning, feeding, propagation and protection. He also explains flower colours, and a final chapter deals with the kitchen garden.
