Grow Proteas


By Graham Duncan, Neville Brown and Louise Nurrish

Grow Proteas is written by Graham Duncan, Neville Brown and Louise Nurrish, along with Robbie Thomas, in an easily readable style perfect for the layman. It is a practical work focusing on the cultivation and propagation of 100 of the most rewarding wild proteas, accompanied by colour photographs.
Information for each species includes notes on wild distribution, height and spread, flowering time, suitability for garden or container cultivation, hardiness ratings and recommended propagation methods.
