Summary
"Regarded as a classic among practical gardening guides, Peter Thompson's book has been thoroughly revised and updated, with almost twice as much text and nearly three times as many plants as are found in the celebrated first edition. Though vastly expanded in scope and content for an international readership, Thompson's book still offers the same key philosophy of basing techniques on "observing how plants reproduce naturally.""--Jacket.
