  • Comprehensive coverage of unique topics – no previous book has contained this amount of information covering the entire spectrum of horticulture and horticultural science from crop production through environmental contexts to social impacts and welfare benefits
  • International authority – all the authors contributing to this trilogy are internationally acclaimed authorities each bringing vast accumulated knowledge and expertise
  • Clear, concise and well illustrated text – each author has provided a clear, detailed but concise analysis of their field of expertise amply interpreted and illustrated for ease of reading and understanding
The trilogy ‘Horticulture: Plants for People and Places’ encapsulates and explains the fundamentals of what the disciplines of ‘horticulture’ and ‘horticultural science’ embrace and encompass currently. Those outside these disciplines, and not infrequently some inside them, find difficulty in understanding and explaining the broad-church which is horticulture and horticultural science.
