Plants propagate themselves naturally in the wild, using a variety of amazing techniques, and gardeners can learn from nature by copying these methods in their own backyards. This book explains how to grow plants from seed, how to take cuttings from established plants, dividing plants into sections, layering shoots, and grafting the top of one plant to the bottom of the another. All the techniques are explained with step-by-step instructions.
