  Garden Bookworm editor's notes:  
From the Library Journal
Getting plants off to a good start is probably the single most important step in gardening. The success of this book lies in its sole focus on this aspect of gardening. Halpin describes plant reproduction in easy-to-understand terms, with general explanations of starting plants from seeds, using transplants, and propagating plants by cuttings, layering, dividing, and grafting. Specific instructions for most common plants, including trees, shrubs, and flowers are provided. Most libraries will find this to be a useful tool for answering questions about how, when, and where to plant materials.-- Peter C. Leonard, Mt. Lebanon P.L., Pa.
