Product description

An Exposition of the Art and Science of Increasing Plants as Practiced by the Nurseryman , Florist and Gardener. This is a facsimile of a book published 1918 New York. With all the original drawing s and photos. It is not a report of a discovery or discoveries, but a compilation of methods. Men have come to realize that every advancement in the art or science of doing things is for the benefit of not only themselves but for the good of all men. Each book considers the subject matter from a different angle. This book attempts to briefly explain the art and science of increasing plants so that the florist, orchardist nursen,man, and amateur plant lover may have a guide for properly increasing his stock. There is no reason why every farmer, if he so desires, may not propagate all the fruits necessary for his own garden and orchard, writes W. L. Howard. Such work can be done at little or no expense and, besides, it is pleasant and interesting. The author acknowledges credit to all who, through their wide experience, have written of plant propagation, and especially toT homas Meehan and George W. Oliver, both pre-eminent in their fields of nursery and greenhouse propagation.
