The making of better gardens in America.

Better gardens?

It is with a feeling in which there is something of fear that I close
these pages--fear that many of those little things which become second
nature to the grower of plants and seem unimportant, but which
sometimes are just the things that the beginner wants to know about,
may have been inadvertently left out.

A CALENDAR OF OPERATIONS

One of the greatest difficulties in
gardening is to get things started
ahead at the proper time, and yet
upon the thoroughness with which
this is done the success of the
garden must depend, in large
measure.

BERRIES AND SMALL FRUITS

Berries
Berries-Small fruits
Besides the tree-fruits discussed in
the preceding posts, there is
another class which should be
represented in every home garden--
the berries and small fruits. These
have the advantage of occupying
much less room than the former do
and are therefore available where
the others are not.
The methods of giving berries proper cultivation are not so generally
known as the methods used with vegetables. Otherwise there is no reason
why a few of each should not be included in every garden of average
size.
