This study aims to assist the newcomer to the world of miniature geraniums to know his plants and the conditions under which they will give most satisfaction, as well as covering problems which may arise. The book was first published in 1968 and this edition has been revised and updated. Additions and deletions have been made to bring it into line with modern methods and varieties. All the photographs of varieties are new, and in most cases taken from the author's personal collection. There is also a list of the nurseries visited by the author. Topics covered include potting and re-potting, propagating, grafting, feeds, fertilizers and watering, heating, pests and diseases.
