This is a good book, written as a first or second year college text book. It covers many topics associated with commercial greenhouse operations in a general manner, with a few topics covered in greater depth. It is informative and worth having on your shelf if your considering a commercial greenhouse operation.

I recommend reading this book if you’re truly interested in using text books on horticulture, gardening, soil, commercial productivity, botany, small business enterprise, and container gardening productivity in commercial nursery procedures.

The way this book is written makes it easy to understand basic concepts and principles for understanding everything one needs to know about operating a commercial greenhouse. Lots of useful information about soil chemistry, nutrition and plant propagation. A must for every horticulturist's library.

This is useful for a high school horticulture class. Lots of information including cultivar color selections. Has self quizzes, Is not a commercial handbook of operations.

The text is very informative and well put together but the study questions at the end of each chapter occasionally reflect that they are based on the 2nd Ed. not the 3rd.

I have been in some facet of horticulture my entire life and this still a good reference for from time to time no matter how old
