This book has become established as a core text for students of horticulture, and an essential reference for practising horticulturists and their suppliers, landscape gardeners and designers, and greenkeepers. This third edition, substantially revised from the last edition published in 1994, maintains the strengths of previous editions. It has been expanded by 70 pages, and contains 48 new illustrations. Topics covered in this edition include choosing materials for potting mixes, fertilizers, efficient use of water, drainage, salinity, turf management, soil-borne diseases, hydroponics, and the preparation of soils for landscape planting.
