About this book

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.

Reviews

“The 39 chapters of the trilogy, written by 108 authors in total, are grouped as Production Horticulture (Volume 1), Environmental Horticulture (Volume 2) and Social Horticulture (Volume 3). … The editors as well as the authors of all the chapters have produced a triad of books that for many years will keep its value as a standard work on horticulture in its broadest sense.” (Robert J. Bogers, Chronica Horticulturae, Vol. 55 (1), 2015)
