9781333587246: The Forcing Garden, or How to Grow Early Fruits, Flowers, and Vegetables: With Plans and Estimates Showing the Best and Most Economical Way of ... for the Various Classes (Classic Reprint)

Excerpt from The Forcing Garden, or How to Grow Early Fruits, Flowers, and Vegetables: With Plans and Estimates Showing the Best and Most Economical Way of Building Glass-Houses, Pits, and Frames for the Various Classes
I have studied for a long time the functionary con struction and the active properties of plants, especially the vine, and I think I may say that I have found that warmth combined with moisture at the roots are the necessary conditions for well-coloured and fine fruit, an abundance of oxygen among the branches being likewise necessary for a good crop of fruit for the coming year. On these principles I have established my sharp angles and vine border-protector.
I believe it will be found that The Asparagus Pit, ' The Lily of the Valley and Christmas Rose Pit, ' The Gooseberry House, ' The Potato House, ' 'the Pea Frame, ' and The Wall Peach Screens, ' will recommend themselves, and be regarded as something new, and of some importance in their various capacities. The method of getting large onions, and in greater numbers will doubtless be a novelty with many persons.
My method Of glazing with clips, ' will be found equal if not superior to most others; and the plans, and careful estimates attached to the various arrange ments for building, glazing, and heating, will I hope meet the wants of the horticultural enquirer.
