This vintage book contains an accessible and comprehensive guide to growing melons, with information on common pitfalls, pests, fertilisation, feeding, harvesting, and much more. Written in clear, plain language and full of useful tips and interesting information, this guide is ideal for anyone with an interest in growing melons, and it would make for a great addition to collections of fruit growing literature. The chapters of this book include: 'Soil – Raising Young Plants', 'Muskmelon – Sutton's Emerald Gem', 'Soil', 'Raising Young Plants', 'Melon Culture', 'Planting', 'Setting The Fruit', 'Watering', 'Feeding', 'Gathering the Fruit', 'Insects and Mildew', 'Varieties', 'Melon Superb', 'Gathering the Fruit', etcetera. Many antiquarian books like this are becoming increasingly hard-to-come-by and expensive, and it is with this in mind that we are republishing this antiquarian volume now in an affordable, modern edition - complete with a new prefatory introduction on fruit growing.
