The Modern Flower Garden - 6. Lilies - With Chapters on Lily Species and Propagation

W. A. Constable

This is volume VI of "The Modern Flower Garden" series, dealing with lilies. Lilies are a group of herbaceous flowering plants native to the temperate northern hemisphere and northern subtropics. This volume contains a wealth of information on the lily, as well as how they can be successfully grown and maintained. Contents include: "The Genus: Its Used and Requirements", "Lilies in Natural Conditions", "Selecting the Bulbs", "Planting and Culture", "Treatment of European Lilies", "The Asiatic Species", "Time to Plant", "Lilies in Pots", "Potting Lilies", "Hybrids", "Propagation", "Diseases and Pests", "Lily Species and Hybrids", 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
