Lilies for English Gardens: A Guide for Amateurs, Compiled from Information Published Lately in the Garden, with the Addition of Some Original Chapters (Classic Reprint) by Gertrude Jekyll (Paperback / softback, 2015)
Excerpt from Lilies for English Gardens: A Guide for Amateurs, Compiled From Information Published Lately in the Garden, With the Addition of Some Original Chapters Lilies, comprising as they do, some of the most stately and beautiful of garden flowers, are t nearly so much grown in gardens as their beauty deserves. One may go through many a rather large place and t see a Lily from one end to the other, and in spite of the ermous and ever-increasing interest in gardens and flowers of these days, a large proportion of the people who are taking a practical interest in horticulture hardly as yet kw one Lily from ather. The present writer and compiler, who has been a working amateur for thirty years, has keenly felt the want of a short, concise, illustrated handbook; such a book as will just tell amateurs in the plainest way what they are most likely to want to kw about Lilies. Such a book has therefore been prepared in the form of the present volume, in which the information has been condensed and put as shortly as possible for greater simplicity and ease of reference.
