“Little Gardens” is a 1908 gardening guide with a focus on creating beautiful gardens with only a small space to work with. It gives information on the best plants to choose for small gardens, as well as how to prepare the ground, when to plant, pests and diseases, and much more. This volume is perfect for amateurs and would make for a fantastic addition to collections of relate literature. Contents include: “On making a Garden—Plans for Little Gardens—Rustic Arches—Log Ornaments—Garden Seats and Arbours”, “Making Paths—Edgings to Lawns and Walks—Making a Lawn—Lawns from Turf and Seed—Preparing Ground—Planting—Best Time to Plant—Planting Bulbs—What to Plant in Spring—Plants for Shady, Sunny, and Dusty Gardens—How to Make a Small Rockery”, “Beautiful Beds of Flowers—How to Plan and Plant them”, “Roses—Carnations—Pinks—Violets”, 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.
