Herbaceous Perennials Production

This guide is a comprehensive information source that considers the diversity of situations encountered by growers in businesses of all sizes.

The 220-page book maintains a focus on production and contains information that until now was available only in piecemeal form. It discusses the basics-such as taxonomy and nomenclature, plant hardiness, the physical needs of crops, and types of irrigation systems-as well as cutting-edge, research-based information about perennial propagation and production.
