With more than 260,000 copies in print, this bestselling primer on the science of plants is back and better than ever, with updated content and new photography. What happens inside a seed after it is planted? How are plants structured? How do plants reproduce? The answers to these and other questions about complex plant processes can be found in the bestselling Botany for Gardeners. First published in 1990 with more than 260,000 copies sold, it has become the go-to introduction to botany for students and gardeners.

Now in its fourth edition, Botany for Gardeners has been expanded and updated. It features a revised interior, with new photos and illustrations that clarify the concepts clearer than ever before. Additional updates address scientific advances, changes in nomenclature and taxonomy, and more. As before, Botany for Gardeners shares accessible information about how plants are organised, how they have adapted to nearly all environments on earth, their essential functions, and how they reproduce.  176 colour photographs, 56 illustrations
