Chalker-Scott, Linda.

Why do slugs prefer your lettuces to eating weeds which are just as tasty?   Why do container plants wilt even though they have plenty of water? Linda Chalker-Scott tackles these and other questions gardeners ask in this engaging and accessible introduction to plant physiology.  This book explains how plants tell time, how they move to follow the sun and capture food, and why they change colour. By revealing the science behind what plants do every day, this book arms you with information that will change the way you garden. You’ll learn how to fertilize and prune more effectively, how to weed less than you ever have, and how to determine which garden products are worth your time and money.
