World standard on plant propagation and horticulture for over 50 years!

Hartmann and Kester’s Plant Propagation remains the field’s most complete and up-to-date guide to the principles and practices of plant propagation. Using color figures throughout, the text pairs chapters on horticultural science with commercial techniques for plant propagation. It starts with an introduction to the industry and basic plant biology, and then dives into more complex technical concepts, ranging from seed and vegetative propagation, to propagation techniques for specific fruits, nuts, and crops for the greenhouse and nursery.


The extensively updated Ninth Edition integrates the latest breakthroughs and innovations, including advances in plant hormone biology and the molecular basis of plant growth. It includes a vast new range of color photos taken at commercial producers and research labs around the world.
