In this little book are given the results of my experience in practical work in the flower garden during the last five years, in caring for the grass and evergreens, arranging flowers to secure constant color effects, raising plants and trees from seeds, and the use of fertilizers most suited to the needs of the various plants and productive of the best results. -- Helena Rutherfurd Ely, March 1911
