"I know of no book that deals with this range of subjects. I am sure the book is needed and that it will be welcomed by the horticultural community."
"Professor Gregory and the other scientists involved are all first rate. A major point in favour of the project is the high level of competence that is available for quite a diverse range of subject matter."
"Wide ranging and comprehensive topics with jargon-free scientific explanations... an excellent book for an introductory planbt science or horticultural science course. One reason is that the authors do a very good job of explaining in straightforward terms the "why" or the science that underlies the horticultural or gardening practices.... edited and well written by a group of highly regarded scientists" Journal of Environmental Quality.
'This book is unique in that it comprehensively covers subjects that are normally dealt with in separate publications.... it would be a valuable addition t othe librarties of students of horticulture and other interested individuals.' Andrea Tietmeyer, Chicago Botanic Garden.
