Garden Practices and Their Science
Written in a clear and accessible style, Garden Practices and Their Science guides gardeners in the practical arts of plant husbandry and in their understanding of its underpinning principles. The author, Professor Geoff Dixon, is an acknowledged and internationally respected horticulturist and microbiologist; he intertwines these arts and principles carefully, expertly leading readers from one to the other. Achieving the manipulation of plant life is described in eight full-colour, well-illustrated chapters covering the growing of potatoes, bulb onions, legumes, small-seeded vegetables, soft fruit, bulbs and herbaceous ornamentals in great detail. Environmental factors controlling the successful husbandry of these crops is described in simple, non-technical language, increasing gardeners' enjoyment and competence. Gardeners are also informed of the tools and equipment they require and their safe use. Also provided are a series of simple, straightforward tests identifying the aerial and soil environments beneficial for plant growth using readily accessible domestic tools. Discussions of very straightforward techniques for vegetative propagation conclude this book. Each chapter ends with a list of the gardening knowledge that has been gained by readers. The structure of this book fulfils a longstanding need for descriptions of practical skills integrated with the corresponding biological reactions of plants. Emphasis is placed on gardeners' development of healthy soils, which encourage vigorous, active root systems capable of withstanding stresses-an aspect of gardening that rarely receives sufficient attention. Tailored for readers requiring clear and concise directions, this very practical book is an instruction manual directed at early-stage gardening learners. These include people of all ages and requirements such as new garden owners, allotment-holders, apprentices and students of basic levels in the Royal Horticultural Society's or City & Guilds qualifications, career changers, community gardeners and those needing applied biological knowledge for GCSE examinations.

The Holistic Gardener:: First Aid from the Garden
A handy guide to quick and effective first-aid treatments for commonly occurring accidents and complaints, derived from garden, pantry and under-sink sources.

The resource is on your doorstep: the plant beside you as your work or relax in the garden can be the answer to the hive, ache or watery eye. It is written by a professional gardener with a lifetime of experience of accidents that can happen in the garden and of how to cure/respond within the garden context using plants and items at hand in the garden. All the dots are joined, you won't need a book on herbs, a book on homemade remedy preparation and a garden plant reference - they are all combined in the first aid advice in this book.

Hydroponics for Houseplants: An Indoor Gardener's Guide to Growing Without Soil
Pick your container, fill it with water, and sit back and watch your plant grow-now in full color! Hydroponics for Houseplants is the answer to anyone who has ever shied away from growing house plants because of messy dirt or fear of things dying if left for a few days without water. Ditch the hassle and learn how to grow plants indoors with nothing but water. Peter Loewer, an inveterate inventor of water gardening techniques, has written and illustrated this charming guide to teach readers the basics of hydroculture. This technique of growing plants in water has a history of almost 300 years, from experiments by an English botanist to the giant automated factory greenhouses of the twentieth century where vegetables are now grown commercially by the ton. Learn how to utilize this simple, time-tested method in your own home and never worry about over- or under-watering again! In this new repackaged edition, readers will learn about the incredible number of plant varieties (over 150!) that can actually live in water-whether sitting on a windowsill, decorating a wall, or flourishing under artificial light. Bring life into your home with plants such as lilies of the valley, hyacinths, English ivy, philodendrons, oleanders, and umbrella plants. In addition to this, Loewer provides basic knowledge on holdfasts, charcoal, colored glass versus clear, the addition of nutrients, and suggestions on a variety of decorating schemes that are accessible to even a novice indoor water gardener.
