Usually arrives at our store within 4-7 days
"The Amateur Garden" is a classic guide to designing, maintaining, and even profiting from a beautiful garden. It looks in detail at the different plants and flowers that can be introduced, as well as such subjects as climate consideration, soil types, seasonal expectations, and much more. Highly recommended for green-fingered enthusiasts and collectors of vintage gardening literature. Contents include: "A Short History of Gardening", "My Own Acre", "The American Garden", "Where to Plant What", "The Cottage Gardens of Northampton", "The Private Garden's Public Value", "The Midwinter Gardens of New Orleans", etc. 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.
