Finally, a useful chapter on plants for different situations and problems that are likely to occur and how they can be remedied.

Part 2 contains an alphabetical listing of the genera, followed by general information about propagation, cultivation and pest and disease problems. Then follows a botanical description of the garden worthy species and/or cultivars in that genus, including detailed information on the cultivation of these plants. All in all it provides information on 114 genera and over 360 species."

The book concludes with a comprehensive glossary and a chapter on early botanists and horticulturists and their role in introducing N.Z. natives into cultivation."
