This vintage book contains a handbook of garden rockery, being a guide to how to make, plant, and manage it. Comprehensive and profusely illustrated, this accessible guide will appeal to modern green-fingered readers, and would make for a fantastic addition to collections of gardening literature. Contents include: "The Garden", "Mircocosm of Nature", "What is Rockery?", "What Stone to Use", "Soil", "Formation", "Fern Rockery", "Flowering Plants", "Hedge-Banks and Old Walls", and "The Big and the Small Rockery". Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this volume now in an affordable, high-quality edition complete with a specially commissioned new introduction on the history of gardening. This book was first published in 1908.
