You Can Grow African Violets

 

You Can Grow African Violets

 

Have you ever killed an African violet? Kent and Joyce Stork Killed their first violet too! They soon mastered the skills for growing the plant and eventually wrote for the African Violet Magazine, the official publication of the African Violet Society of American, Inc. for over ten years. Their column For Beginners explained the the basic elements of growing violets in an entertaining and straightforward way that anyone could understand.

Now these columns have been adapted and edited to provide even the most novice grower with a step-by-step guide, whether the goal is simply to keep violets alive or to exhibit the plants in competitive shows.

'YOU Can Grow African Violets' Revised Index for books printed with a 2007 copyright.

Books printed with a 2007/2008 copyright do not need the revised index.

Growing To Show

 

Growing To Show

 

How to grow prize-winning African violets.

Pauline Bartholomew, grower of prize-winning show plants and experienced show judge, wrote and illustrated the first Growing To Show in 1985.  Since then it has been reprinted several times, with only minor additions.  In 2003 Pauline gave AVSA all rights to this book, and we have done our best to preserve her wisdom and guidance as we bring Growing to Show up to date.  Pauline’s illustrated “how-to” steps and detailed writing cover every aspect of culture.  Much of the original text has not changed, but new research and new products have added to our knowledge, and we have added information on blossom and foliage types, water quality and watering methods, pH testing, pesticideslight options, Saintpaulia species, the new taxonomy, and growing and showing miniatures and semiminiatures.
Note to beginning growers:  Welcome!  This book is for you, too.  Although the title is Growing To Show, it is an excellent resource for everyone who loves African violets and wishes to nurture them to their prime condition including experienced growers who have grown and shown award-winning African violets for many years.
