Reviews

  • "The book is splendidly produced, represents good value for money, and brings together much up-to-date practical information and scientific expertise. It will be a valuable source of reference for flower growers, students and all associated with the trade, as well as being useful for plant pathologists and advisers. I am bound to say I will feel more confident with this book at hand, when next confronted by a sickly potted plant, than was hitherto the case."
    --PLANT PATHOLOGY


    "It is a solid review of the major florist crops produced today."
    --HORTSCIENCE
    "The Second Edition provides a useful, up-to-date source of information on the commercial production of flower crops."
    --BIOLOGICAL JOURNAL OF THE LINNEAN SOCIETY
