This book contains a classic guide to growing plants and shrubs on chalk- and lime-rich soil, as commonly found in England and Ireland. It describes the differences and problems these soil types pose for the gardener, as well as offering advice on what plants should be used and the different techniques required for their cultivation. This volume will be of considerable utility to gardeners working with these tricky soil conditions and it would make for a handy addition to collections of gardening literature. Contents include: "Calcareous Soils and Their Situation and Types", "The Improvement and Maintenance of Calcareous Soils", "The Flower Garden", "Ferns", "Perennials and Annual Plants Recommended for a Calcareous Soil", "Plants not Recommended", "Bulbous Plants", "Bulbous and Tuberous Plants that will Grow Well on Lime", 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.
