KIRKUS REVIEW

A book on the fundamentals, appealing not just for its ample photographs and attractive close-up drawings but also for the quality and extent of its advice. Kramer gives seasonal tips for plant families in general and 365 plants in particular, making adjustments for light and temperature changes and providing a propagation chart that includes hints for avoiding common problems. He considers February and March pivotal months--before the spring/summer growth spurts--and offers pointers on a large number of relevant topics: the deficiencies of packaged soil mixes, plant placement in rooms, the importance of periodic repotting, how to seal a stem cut with carbon from a burnt match. Sound recommendations from an experienced hand.
