Inhaltsangabe: An `Irishman's cutting' in garden parlance has well-formed roots before it is detached from the parent plant. Like the garden variety, the cuttings in this book have deep roots in the gardens of Ireland and among plantsmen, of both sexes, with Irish `roots'. These cuttings are amusing, interesting tales of gardeners, plant-hunters and plants discovered near home or in faraway places, sometimes after great hardships. There are stories of eccentric, opinionated Irish gardeners and plants they cherished, propagated, and passed on. ""This fascinating and beautiful volume will appeal to gardeners and garden lovers alike.""-Book News ""Filled with gorgeous photographs and delicate illustrations that make An Irishman's Cuttings an ideal gift for any plant lover."" Irish America Magazine ""Lavishly illustrated with archival materials and contemporary photographs, this volume covers a much broader gardening world than the Emerald Isle."" - Current Books on Gardening and Botany
