There is some excellent advice on the timing of propagating activity which refers back to the opening chapter on plant behaviour.
I think it strikes a good balance between the likely abilities and time-poverty of the typical gardener and the necessary minimum work required to get some propagation going. It is also well balanced in limiting technical horticultural pernickety details whilst giving enough information to be useful.

Creative Propagation A Grower s Guide (Peter Thompson). The book also covers planting in shady and sunny places, choosing plants for containers and the creative use of colour for subtlety or more extrovert effects. This comprehensive book covers annuals, perennials, bulbs, trees, shrubs, and conifers, and seems to be as popular among plant enthusiasts as among growers. The author stresses that the key to propagating is understanding how plants behave and then providing optimum conditions. Propagation, pests and diseases, and growing plants for difficult areas are also included.
