This day is published,
A New and Enlarged Edition of
DIRECTIONS FOR THE PROPAGATION, CULTURE, AND ARRANGEMENT OF
Buccleuch at Drumlanrig. Second Edition, crown 8vo, price 7s. 6d. “This is essentially a book for amateurs, and every amateur who is fortunate enough to be its possessor, or who may merely skim over its pages, will, we are assured, agree with us in regarding its author as being entitled to great praise for the simple and clear manner in which he has explained the cultural directions, which, if carefully complied with, will enable the non-professional floriculturist to grow plants as well as any gardener.”-Gardeners' Chronicle.
“Nowadays the flower-garden is such a very important and interesting subject to many, that almost any book on the subject is sure to find readers; but as this is written by one of the best gardeners in the country, and one, moreover, thoroughly master of the modern system of decoration, it deserves more attention than any book published on this or allied subjects of recent years.
We are acquainted with the results produced by the able author, as well as with his book, and can therefore pronounce the book the best on the subject yet written, or likely to be written for a long time to come." -The Field.
“ To sum up, this ‘Handy Book' deserves a welcome from all classes interested in floriculture.”-Saturday Review.
“One of the very few books of its kind in which the amateur, instead of being overwhelmed by details, has the principles which are to guide him put plainly and clearly before him, so that he may be able to think and judge for himself.
Those who have only small and moderate means and appliances, even if they have merely a patch of ground, a few beds in front of a parlour window even, will find this book of use."-Pall Mall Gazette.
This day is published, The Handbook of Hardy Herbaceous Perennial and
ALPINE FLOWERS FOR THE FLOWER-GARDEN. By WILLIAM SUTHERLAND, Gardener to the Earl of Minto; formerly Manager of the Her. baceous Department at Kew. In One Vol. crown 8vo, price 8s. 6d.
The Book of the Garden, By Charles M'Intosh. In Two large Volumes, royal 8vo, embellished with 1353 Engravings.

-Construction, Heating, and Ventilation of Fruit and Plant Houses, Pits, Frames, and other Garden Structures, with Practical Details. Illustrated by 1073 Engrav
ings, pp. 776. £2, 10s. II. PRACTICAL GARDENING, Contains—Directions for the Culture of the
Kitchen Garden, the Hardy-Fruit Garden, the Forcing Garden, and Flower Garden, including Fruit and Plant Houses, with Select Lists of Vegetables, Fruits, and Plants. Pp. 868, with 279 Engravings. £1, 17s. 6d.
A NEW AND ENLARGED EDITION OF A Book about Roses, How to Grow and Show them.
By S. REYNOLDS HOLE, Author of ' A Little Tour in Ireland.' Third
Edition. With additional Matter. Crown 8vo, price 7s. 6d. “The whole volume teems with encouraging data and statistics; and, while it is intensely practical, it will interest general readers by an unfailing vivacity which supplies garnish and ornament to the array of facts, and furnishes 'ana' in such rich profusion that one might do worse than lay by many of Mr Hole's good stories for future table-talk.
It is 'hy the enlivenment of pages full of solid information on the whole subject of Rose-culture with suchlike quips, cranks, and comic references, that the Book about Roses' earns its title to a place in every drawing-room and library, and wins its author an even greater success than that of his 'Little Tour in Ireland.'”-Saturday Review.
“The extracts give little idea of the genuine fun of the book, which we cordially recommend to every amateur who wishes to grow roses, as at once the pleasantest and the best yet written on the subject.”—The Field.
“A very captivating book, containing a great deal of valuable information about the Rose and its culture, given in a style which cannot fail to please."-Journal of Horticulture.
On Ornamental-Foliaged Pelargoniums: with Prac
TICAL HINTS FOR THEIR PRODUCTION, PROPAGATION, AND CULTIVATION. By PETER GRIEVE, Culford, Bury St Edmunds. Second Edition, enlarged, including description of Best Varieties introduced up to the present time, and Engravings, price 4s.
A Practical Treatise on the Cultivation of the Grape
VINE. By WILLIAM THOMSON, Gardener to His Grace the Duke of
Buccleuch, Dalkeith Park. Sixth Edition, 8vo, price 5s. “We opened with much interest a volume on the vine which has just reached us. Its author has long been known as an excellent cultivator, especially of grapes; that he is also a man of good sense is now shown by his having confined his treatise within the limits of his own personal experience.
When books on gardening are written thus conscientiously, they are alike honourable to their author and valuable to the public.”--Lindley's Gardeners' Chronicle.
“We cannot too strongly recommend Mr Thomson's treatise as a thoroughly practical and sure guide to the cultivation of the vine.”—Journal of Horticulture.
“We have never read anything more satisfactory in all respects on the subject of which it treats than Mr Thomson's treatise. It is precisely what hosts of amateurs who either cultivate their own vines without the assistance of a gardener, or who superintend their cultivation with the smallest possible moiety of assistance, have been in search of for years as a vade mecum, and we can offer this class of our readers no better advice than to procure a copy of the book with all convenient despatch."-Western Daily Express.
