Originally published in 1907, this book is a beautifully written account of different gardens and the plants therein. It contains a wealth of information regarding the types of plants suited for times of year, location within the garden, their preferences for various soil types, but it is also more than a simple gardener's companion. It is written in a poetic style where the author also gives brief accounts of the memories that certain plants evoke and has a smattering of anecdotes. There are many lovely photographs throughout. Contents Include: Making the Garden Concerning Soils Plantings and Prunings The Spring Garden and its Bulbs May Garlands The Shubbery The Summer Garden The Rose Garden A Garden of Delight Cut Flowers and a Few Hints on Their Arrangement Birds and Gardens The Autumn Garden Bramshill The Rectory Garden and the Mount Keywords: Plants Rectory Garden Autumn Garden Garden Of Delight Spring Garden Rose Garden Cut Flowers Soil Types Poetic Style Garlands Anecdotes Garde
