Gardening & Horticulture students will inevitably study Techniques, and in doing so need to obtain Techniques textbooks. But students of Techniques often spend far too much money every semester purchasing Techniques textbooks. Techniques books can be very expensive when you buy new textbooks, while a rented textbook can be half the price or less. For example, a rental copy of either Collins Wildlife Gardener, The Lazy Gardener, or Biology of Springtails (Insecta: Collembola) can be 75% less than what you might pay in a college bookstore.

Textbook rentals are easy (and even cheaper than buying used textbooks! And there are a number of ways to find the rentals themselves. If you wanted to rent James Wong's Homegrown Revolution, the best way would be to find the ISBN number (in this case, ISBN9780007231843) from your Techniques class guide and search for it on Whether you’re studying Container Gardening, Propagation & Cultivation, or any other subject within Techniques, renting textbooks is the way to go.
