A good, helpful book on propagation please.....

West Somerset, England Eng

Please can anyone recommend a good book on all propagation techniques - sowing seeds, taking soft and hard wood cuttings etc. I've seen an RHS one on-line, by Alan Toogood..has anybody any comments on that, or other possibilities?? I have a heated propagator, by the way! Thanks.



The one you mention is the one I use as a reference book all the time. Covers most things well.

I use "The Gardening from Which? Guide to Successful Propagation" but I've had it for several years and don't know if it's still available.
The ISBN is 0-340-39981-3

Thanks, Andrew. I'll give it a try - I get Gardening Which? magazine, so I'll be able to ring them and ask.

Is that the one I asked about - by Alan Toogood?

Also - does it include the use of propagators, please?

I would think all the information you will ever need is there for free... the internet.
