This 1926 gardening handbook focuses on the growing of three types of flower: Begonias, Gladioli, and Dahlias. Dahlias and Gladioli are popular summer and autumn flowering plants, whereas the Begonia is suited to summer outdoors and winter under glass. This vintage book includes a wealth of useful information related to these particular flowers, as well as step-by-step instructions and expert tips for their successful growing. Profusely illustrated throughout and written in simple language, this vintage guide is perfect for amateurs and would make for a worthy addition to collections of gardening literature. Contents include: “The Dahlia’s Progress”, “How to Grow Dahlias”, “How the Dahlia is Increased”, etc. Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. 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.
