Originally published in 1915, this book contains a detailed guide to small-scale fruit and vegetable gardening at home or at the allotment, including chapters on planning, plating, cropping, making a profit, and much more. With easy-to-follow instructions and simple explanations, this fantastic and timeless volume is highly recommended for all green-fingered readers. Contents include: “Bees and Bee Keeping", "Laying out a Small Holding", "Working the Land", "Arrangement of Fruit Trees", "Garden Plans", "Planting and Arranging Plots", "Cash Accounts", "Small Garden Plots", "Poultry Rearing and Keeping”, 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 market gardening.
