Excerpt from The Handbook to the Flower Garden and Greenhouse

The following short lessons for the cultivation of all the popular flowers and plants will be acceptable to those who grow a variety of subjects, and who have general garden establishments. It has always been my aim to avoid mystery - to use the plainest and simplest way of doing everything, from the mixing of the compost to the perfecting of the plant. I differ from most of the previous writers on the culture of many subjects, for I recommend nothing that is difficult to obtain or offensive in its nature. I have, as far as I could do so, made gardening a pleasure. I do not pretend that the numerous plants and flowers mentioned here are all that could be cultivated; but I will say they comprise the best, the most popular, and the least troublesome of all our floral beauties, and few persons will desire a better collection than may be found among the subjects in the present work.

Some of the ordinary operations in a garden are described at the beginning, that they may not have to be repeated in treating of particular plants. I am thus enabled to say briefly, "Shift this, or prune that, or repot the other," instead of going over the same ground again when touching upon the numerous plants, which, in fact, require the same treatment. Nevertheless, some of the most popular subjects have tempted me to give particular directions, which are impressed upon the mind of the grower by distinct lessons, simply because I know many are apt to look for the article they require, and expect to find all the necessary information under that one head.

General Management Of A Greenhouse

A greenhouse is a structure for the protection of plants of temperature climates, requiring in this country but little artificial heat.
