Introductory books on Horticultural Science?

lovehummingbirdsJanuary 21, 2005

I am interested in getting a degree in Horticulture. Could anyone recommand a good book to read on this subject? An introductory to horticulture 101 sort of thing?

The only one I know that fits your description is "Horticultural Science" by Jules Janick .. Fourth Edition .. it is indeed as you say a 101 textbook .. don't buy it but you may see it in the library .. I'm sure it's not hot off the press... check out page 2 .. has a nice science technology tree that gives an overview of the industry.

Good Day ..
