Description
When this book was first published in 1908, most people were in the habit of raising their own food and flowers. Jacob Biggle felt that a gardener's success had to do with willpower and passion rather than acreage: "The man, woman or youngster who really wants a garden, will somehow manage to have a good one regardless of soil conditions, bad weather, measles in the family, or whether the area of ground at hand is a square acre or a square rod." Here you'll find timeless advice on soil preparation, sowing, and planting; hotbeds and cold frames; fertilization, cultivation, and irrigation; flower gardening with old-fashioned favorites; and garden pests and friends. The book is from Jacob and Harriet Biggle's classic series of well-illustrated farm books, first published at the turn of the 20th century and prized ever since. Their humane instructions and warmly amusing maxims are timeless, particularly for those who have decided to start their own small farms.
