Mr Middleton's Garden Book

£7.99

Product description

Preface

I suppose I ought to ask forgiveness for perpetrating still another addition to the ponderous list of gardening books. Just a bad habit, I'm afraid. I cannot claim that this book is complete, no gardening book ever is, because the subject is bristling with new ideas and problems, and there is no finality about it; no doubt as I look through the chapters I shall constantly be reminded of something I might have said, so I shall make a point of saying it, not here, but on the gardening page of the Daily Express each Saturday. You will not find me advanced or scientific, because I am writing, in the main, for those whose experience is limited, and financial resources ditto. But I hope the book will prove helpful, and enable us to spend a pleasant hour or two together as it were, because gardeners, of all people, love to discuss their little triumphs and difficulties.

I should like to take this opportunity of thanking my good friend Capt. Marshall, of the Daily Express, for his valuable assistance in editing this book. He has waded patiently through stacks of my untidy manuscripts; patching here, and pruning there, to produce what we hope will prove a readable book. While he has really done the work, I have merely looked over his shoulder and criticised.
