This vintage book contains a complete guide to trees and their management, with information on growing and maintaining a variety of trees in many different situations.

Contents include: "A Short History of Gardening", "Timber-Trees", "Trees Which Grow Best in Moist Situations", "Tree Adapted for Thin and Poor Soils, and Elevated Situations", "Growing Osiers", "Hedges", "Timber Suitable for Hedgerows", "Plantations", and "Planting for Ornamentation". Isabella Mary Beeton (1836-1865) was an English editor, journalist, and writer. Her most famous work is her first book, "Mrs Beeton's Book of Household Management" (1861). Many vintage books such as this are 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.
