In the COMPLETE GUIDE series and originally published in 1995, an illustrated indoor plant book which focuses on the Saintpaulia genus, commonly known as the African violet. It includes information on the history and development of the species, as well as advice on propagation, general care, pest control and hybridization of the plant.

African Violets: the Complete Guide Summary

The African Violet (Saintpaulia) continues to increase in popularity, having developed over the last fifty years from its few hundred varieties to the thousands that exist today in an ever-increasing range of colour and type. This guide includes chapters on the plant's history, development and classification, and provides practical information and advice on propagation, general care, hybridization and the prevention and treatment of pests and diseases. Written in a non-technical style, it seeks to explode the myth that African Violets are difficult to grow.
