The Manual of Plant Grafting: Practical Techniques for Ornamentals, Vegetables, and Fruit
Should be on every serious gardener's shelf.
New York Times Book Review
Grafting has been used as a method of propagation for thousands of years. But new techniques have arisen in the last twenty years, and the grafting of edible plants, like tomatoes, has become more popular.
A must-have for horticulture professionals and students, The Manual of Plant Grafting is an up-to-date, practical guide to the latest grafting techniques. It features information on the reasons for grafting, along with clear instructions on the formation of the graft union, the production of rootstocks, bench grafting techniques, field grafting, vegetable grafting, and cactus grafting. An A-to-Z appendix of plants features detailed information on what type of graft should be used, when it should be done, what type of root stock needs to be used, and what environment it needs to be kept in.
