Excerpt from Garden Planning and Planting, Vol. 5 Garden Planning and Planting is a subject that, sooner or later, interests most of us. The work of planning is quite one of the most fascinating the gardener can undertake: unfortunately for the inexperienced, it is a simple matter to plan wrongly, and costly to put matters right again. The work of initial planting is scarcely less important. Garden Planning and Planting is published for the direction of the uninitiated: some of the hints contained in these pages may, it is hoped, prove helpful also to experienced workers. A feature of the book is found in the designs for all sorts and sizes of gardens, flower beds and flower borders, with, in many cases, alternative schemes of planting. Most of the designs have been prepared from sketches made by Miss Dunham, who has also contributed many of the tes on planting. Ackwledgments are due to Mr. George Garner, who has helped with diagrams and references. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
