“Plant Propagation” is a CD-based course that covers seed propagation, divisions, layering, cuttings, and grafting. It is multimedia at its best—hundreds of photos, illustrations, and videos show close-up details of each propagation method and create a fresh and enjoyable way to test the viewer's knowledge. Although designed for the amateur gardener, it is detailed enough to be used as a supplemental text in college-level plant propagation courses. Additional features include: 1) an extensive Resources section that lists additional book and internet resources, scientific names of all the plants discussed in the course, and sources for tools; 2) an extensive Glossary, including audio of the correct pronunciation of 50 terms; 3) a Basics section that reviews the different types of plant propagation, plant biology, and horticultural concepts, such as potting media, lighting, and plant growth regulators; and 4) a short discussion of the use of tissue culture for plant propagation. “Plant Propagation” is available for $40 from Purdue Extension's online education store at http://www.ces.purdue.edu/new/ . It's also available by calling (888) EXT-INFO or e-mailing media.order@purdue.edu.
