A Handbook of Practical Horticulture

Utpal Banerjee (Author)
Synopsis Horticulture is basically the art of garden cultivation. This art requires in-depth knowledge as to the types and contents of soils, seasons, climate, preparation of fields, sowing, ploughing; use of manures, fertilisers, insecticides, pesticides; removal of weeds, etc., and many more aspects of gardening. Preparation and use of garden calendars are of much use to the gardeners as they call for their attention for the work that must be done and must be prepared for in advance to provide for changes in the seasons and the weather. Ever-increasing demand of lowers, fruits and vegetables has given the horticulture a commercial importance. Therefore, horticulture can be adopted and developed as major source of employment requiring proper guidance on all the above aspects. Looking to the dearth of complete literature on horticulture the present book is written in lucid and simple language covering various topics. The book contains exhaustive lists on different kinds of plants like ornamental plants, shrubs, garden plants, climbers, flowering plants and vegetable plants to suit the need. The book will be of immense use to gardeners, farmers, floriculturists, students, teachers, scholars as well as general readers having keen interest in gardening.
