Published September, 1912* * * * *[Illustration: Too few people realize the possibilities for enjoymentinprolonging the garden through the winter months indoors]FOREWORDThere is nothing which adds so much sunshine and cheer to the rooms ofahouse besieged by winter and all his dreary encampment of snow andice,as the greenery, color and fragrance of blossoming plants. There is nopastime quite so full of pleasure and constant interest as this sortofhorticulture; the rooting of small slips, the repotting and wateringandwatching, as new growth develops, and buds unfold. Some have the magicgift, that everything they touch will break into blossom; othersstrive--perhaps too hard--only to gain indifferent results. It ishopedthat this book will aid those of the second class to locate pastmistakes and progress to future success; and further that it mayindicate to those more fortunate ones of the first class the way tomoreextensive achievements in the work they love.This is not a technical book; simply an attempt to tell in so plain away that they cannot be misunderstood the everyday details of thesuccessful management of plants in the house and within such smallglassstructures as may be made, even with limited means and time, a part ofthe average home.There is another aspect of the case worth considering; so much so infact, that it is one of the reasons for writing this book. By the useofsuch modest glass structures as almost everyone can afford not only isthe scope of winter gardening enlarged and the work rendered more easyand certain, but the opportunity is given to make this light labor payfor itself. Fresh vegetables out of season are always acceptable andwell grown plants find a ready sale among one's flower-loving friends.CRANMERE, August 1st, 1912.F. F. R.CONTENTSPART I--PLANTS IN THE HOUSE
