With the interest in horticulture at an all-time high, a new full-color edition of this popular and broad-based text could not be more timely. Its principal feature remains a full yet accessible exploration of basic horticulture principles and practices, conveniently organized by unit and covering such areas as plant science, greenhouse management, using plants in the landscape, lawn and turfgrass establishment and maintenance, vegetable and fruit gardens, and holiday crafts and floral designs. Readers will find a stronger science focus, including updated research on the use of pesticides and insecticides, integrated pest management, and micro propagation. Also new to this richly illustrated full-color Fifth Edition is a striking full-color interior plant identification chart and complete supplement package to enhance the teaching and learning experience.
