Originally published in 1914, this book was intended for school teachers to use as a reference guide in teaching their classes how to build and maintain a school garden. The book details the different types of garden to build, such as rock garden, rosary and wild gardens, and provides weekly and monthly task instructions for classes to maintain the garden all year round. The author discusses the subject comprehensively, explaining the names of plants, tools and pests, aiming to equip school children and beginners with the principles of gardening. The book also contains a variety of illustrations and photographs to assist with teaching. This is a highly informative book that will be of value to anyone with an interest in horticulture and early twentieth-century education.
