Botany for Gardeners

Brian Capon

How do seeds survive for years in suspended animation? Why do shoots grow up and roots grow down? How do plants cope with drought? What "strategies" do they use to insure that their flowers are pollinated? How can roots shatter rock? Not just for gardeners, this book speaks to all of us about the marvelous workings of the lifeforms we call plants.
