AMERICA'S GARDEN BOOK by Louise & James Bush-Brown

Montague Free's book has long been a Bible to all gardeners. This book, it seems to me, should be even more valuable, for it is more complete, not in the items covered but in the method of coverage. It is not a primer -- no beginner gardener will find it presents the ABC's for easy consumption; but for any even slightly experienced gardener, almost every conceivable subject is clarified, presented with the latest proved data, and made practical and readily accessible. Lawn, trees, shrubs, fences, roadways and paths, architectural features, walls, vegetables, fruits, flowers, greenhouses, house plants -- and everything cross indexed, with cross reference interlinearly, so that each subject fits in at every place it is needed. Illustrated with photographs, diagrams, drawings. Mrs. Bush-Brown is head of the Ambler School of Horticulture.
