Hardy Plants For Cottage Gardens

Helen Rickey Albee

First published in 1910, this classic gardening how-to provides instructions on how to properly plant and propagate a variety of "hardy shrubs"--shrubs that are somewhat resistant to cold temperatures. Written in clear, simple language and profusely illustrated, this timeless guide will be of considerable utility to those with an interest in maintaining hardy plants and shrubs in small gardens. Contents include: "In the Beginning", "An Incipient Garden", "The Garden Crows", "My Ambition Grows", "Within the Garden Walls", "Seeds", "A Descent into Particulars", "Propagation of Plants", "Vices of Plants", "Mine Enemies", "Photography of Flowers", "Some Gardeners I Have Known", "A Dedication", 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 the history of gardening.
