Gardening on Chalk and Lime Soil
This early work is a fascinating read for any gardener or historian of gardening, but also contains much information that is useful and practical today. Forming a complete how-to guide it is thoroughly recommended for inclusion on the bookshelf of the gardening enthusiast.
