By EBEN E., REX FORI.
BY WAY OF INTRODUCTION
This book is a book for amateur floriculturists written by one who is in no sense a "professional.” It has been written because there is a constant and increasing demand for a work that treats on flowers from the standpoint of the amateur. An extensive correspondence with flower-loving persons, all over the country, has convinced me that scientific text books are not what is wanted.
What is wanted is plain, practical, easily understood information which will enable those who love flowers, but know very little about them, to grow them successfully, I have confidence Gough in the book to believe that those who read it will find it easy to understand and that those who fuilow out its instructions will be able to grow all the plants treated in it and grow them well.
It has been written from my own personal experience among flowers and not from theory. My way may not be the best way. I do not claim that. I judge it simply by its results, which have been very satisfactory to me.
I do not desire to have it 1.nderstood that I send out this book as a sort of shori cut to complete floricultural knowledge. It is siruply intended to assist the amateur in the acquirement of such a knowledge which can only come from intelligent personal study and observation which will lead to a better acquaintance and a closer friendship wité. Our Friends, the Flowers,
