Excerpt from The Nursery-Manual: A Complete Guide to the Multiplication of Plants

This Manual is the twenty-second edition Of the Nursery Book, re-written and re-set. The nursery-book was first published early in 1891. A revision was made in 1896, as a third edition, when the book was taken over by The Macmillan Co. Since then it has been reprinted frequently. For nearly thirty years the book has enjoyed the confidence of the public even though in the later years it has needed revision. The author can hardly expect it to continue its career for another quarter-century yet he is glad to have the opportunity to make it new again.

The book deals only with propagation and nursery practice. The temptation is strong to include certain related subjects, but the work will probably be useful in proportion as it confines itself to its single purpose. Therefore the reader must not expect to find descriptions Of cultivation, transplanting, the general handling of plants, pruning, seed-breeding, or pollination; nor has it seemed best, in a practical manual, to admit discussions of the interesting scientific questions more or less related to the subject.
