This encyclopaedia has been published especially for the home gardener whose garden is mostly made and looked after without professional help and for those who have turned to gardening for all or part of their living. The aim of this book is to provide a useful reference book for those who want to grow flowers, vegetables and fruit to perfection and to make their gardens a complete success both from the point of view of production and appearance. Every operation that any gardener is called upon to do is fully described and in a way that will be perfectly clear to everyone. Special articles are included on the planning and laying out of gardens large and small, the making of herbaceous borders and rock gardens, the construction of ornamental pools, fountains and other of those features without which a garden is no garden but merely a collection of flowers. This Home Garden Encyclopaedia provides instant guidance on all matters in gardening. The book includes a frontispiece and three half-tone plates and numerous illustrations throughout the text.
