Botany for Gardeners, Fourth Edition

An Introduction to the Science of Plants

Brian Capon


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, the book has been expanded and updated. It features a revised interior, with new photos and illustrations that clarify the concepts. Additional updates address scientific advances, changes in nomenclature and taxonomy, and more. As before, the book shares accessible information about how plants are organized, how they have adapted to nearly all environments on earth, their essential functions and how they reproduce.
