WINDOW SILL GARDENING

This is a how-to book which should find a welcome in every home. For even if one has no gift with window sill gardening, there may be someone in the family who has. Anyhow, Mr. Crockett, whose monthly booklet on flower care goes to 100,000 people, here shares the know-how in terms anyone can understand. After a few basic principles on how plants grow, on light, soil and food, on how to water plants and when, he goes on to the house plants we all know:- African violets, cyclamens, poinsettias, gardenias. To flowering bulbs in the spring. To variegated foliage. To lilies, gloxinias, geraniums. To some of the uncommon house plants and plants generally thought too large for house use. In each section, he discusses care, diseases and their cure, special problems. And at the close, he goes in to summer care, cutting flowers for the house, and the inspiration that flowers provide.
