"Pot-Pourri from a Surrey Garden" is a classic guide to gardening, dealing with a range of subjects interspersed with reflections and observations from an expert gardener. Divided into seasons, it aims to provide the readers with details and instructions on exactly what they should do and consider at different times of the year, with repeated reference to traditional English gardens and gardening. This wonderful handbook is highly recommended for green-fingered enthusiasts and is not to be missed by collectors of vintage gardening literature. Contents include: "January", "Introductory", "Indispensable Books", "An Old Hertfordshire Garden", "Reminiscences", "My Present Garden Plants in a London Room", "Japanese Floral Arrangement", "Cooking Vegetables and Fruit", "Making Coffee", "Early Blossoms", "Winter Gardening", "Frost Pictures on Window Panes", "February", "Forced Bulbs", "The Exhibitions of the Royal Horticultural Society", 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.
