Book Review of The Secret of Plants in the Environment by Rishikesh Upadhyay

The Secret of Plants in the Environment by Rishikesh Upadhyay


The Secret of Plants in the Environment was an interesting and educational read. It is a great resource to have as a gardener but is bot fitting for everyone.

What this book does well, is that it gives the reader a deep dive into the effects of the environment on plants. It highlights issues and changes caused by drought and to much watering. It goes over the effects from the start of the life cycle to the very end. I found it intriguing.

The terminology of this book may turn some off but I loved how it took me back to my years of Biology. I learned a great deal from reading this novel and would recommend it to gardeners everywhere.

It had an organized flow that was easy to follow. The chapters were named accordingly, and I could easily flip to certain sections.

This book is not for those who lack the desire to learn about plants and/or gardening. I would recommend it to readers at least16+ who may have learned many of the descriptive words used in school. Also, it is not an easy and quick read. Excellent source to expand one’s knowledge.
