Familiar Garden Flowers (Paperback)
Fist published in 1913, this charming guide looks at how to plant and maintain a beautiful flower garden, exploring a variety of plants that can be found in typical gardens. It offers detailed descriptions of each plant treated, as well as tips on planting propagating, maintaining, etc. This classic guide is highly rerecorded for green-fingered enthusiasts and is not to be missed by collectors of vintage gardening literature. Contents include: "Color Arrangement of Flowers", "Some Green Things of the Earth", "Raising Flowers from Seed", "Raising Trees from Seed", "Fertilizers and How to Apply Them, Together with Some Plant Remedies", "A Little About Terraces and Their Treatment", "The Wild Garden", "Shrubs, Vines, Plants and Bulbs", etc. Many vintage books such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive. It is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially-commissioned new introduction on the history of gardening.
