First published in 1937, “Modern Garden” is a classic guide to gardening by C. G. Taylor. Within it, Taylor gives a broad overview of contemporary gardens and their history before offering the reader step-by-step instructions and expert tips on how to plant, propagate, and maintain a wealth of beautiful plants and flowers in your garden. Other sections of the guide cover pests and diseases, garden structures and furniture, preparatory considerations, spoil types, and much more. Written in simple, clear language and profusely illustrated, “The Modern Garden” is highly recommended for green fingered enthusiasts looking for inspiration or a helping hand. 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.
