This early work is a fascinating read for any gardening enthusiast or historian, but contains much information that is still useful and practical today. It is a thoroughly recommended title for the amateur or professional fruit grower's shelf. Contents Include: Soft Fruits in the Garden; Site and Soils; The Importance of Plant Health; Spraying; Planting and Manuring; Strawberries; Raspberries; Blackberries, Loganberries and other Hybrid Berries; Blackcurrants; Red and White Currants; Gooseberries; Blueberries; Grapes Out-of-Doors; Propagation; Weed Control; Neglected Soft Fruits; Recipe for Success; Appendix: Ministry of Agriculture Publications; and an Index. Many of the earliest books, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. We are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork.
