Description

"Makes the science of plant processes accessible to home gardeners." -- The American Gardener Why do container plants wilt even when they've been regularly watered? Why did the hydrangea that thrived last year never bloom this year? Plant physiology--the study of how living things function--can solve these and most other problems gardeners regularly encounter. In How Plants Work, horticulture expert Linda Chalker-Scott brings the stranger-than-fiction science of the plant world to vivid life. She uncovers the mysteries of how and why plants do the things they do, and arms you with fascinating knowledge that will change the way you garden.

Description
This accessibly-written guide covers the science behind plants from the ground up, with information on cells, roots, nutrition, light, and reproduction. A basic understanding of plant physiology can help gardeners tremendously: knowing how mulch works can lead to a reduction in weeds; learning when and where to prune will reduce the need to prune in the future. It can also save time and money; an understanding of the science of plants can help gardeners know what garden products are worth a try and which are best left on the shelf.
