This extensive referance book is a dictionary of cultivated plants, etc., giving in alphabetical sequence the culture and propagation of hardy and half-hardy plants, trees and shrubs, orchids, ferns, fruit, vegetables, hothouse and greenhouse plants, etc., including their specific and common names. The gardener is provided with a comprehensive encyclopaedia which not only gives brief descriptions of all the plants they are likely to meet but also complete information regarding their cultivation. In this original, unabridged form it contains much information that is useful and practical today. Many of the earliest books, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. We are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork.
