You Can Grow Violets

From the back cover of You can Grow African Violets: Have you ever killed an African violet?  Kent and Joyce Stork killed their first violet too!  That failure led them to the African Violet Society  of America where they soon mastered the skills for growing and began teaching others.  Their column "For Beginners" explained the basic elements of growing violets in an entertaining and straightforward way that anyone could understand.  These columns became the foundation for this book.  Four sections of the book, "basics", "special techniques", "beyond the fundamentals" and "just for fun" encompass 33 chapters and 212 pages, covering just about everything you would want to know or have a question about growing African violets.  We HIGHLY recommend this book--an excellent reference for beginner and accomplished growers alike.  Sold at a discount from newstand price.

Wonderful Resource!

I have used this book so much for a reference when I have questions about my violets. It is well organized and easy to find the answers I am looking for. I have grown violets for many years and this is my go-to book for help. These authors know their violets and I am thankful they have passed their knowledge on to us novice growers!

I wasnt sure how to keep my african violets alive or how to get them to bloom again if they lived. After reading and learning more, my violets bloom and usually stay alive! The step by step guide was very helpful and easy to understand.
