A Complete Guide to Growing Delicious and Healthy Fruits in Your Home Garden
“It is full of valuable information, not only to beginners but to those of the ripest experience. In fact, it is the most elegant in its execution, comprehensive in its investigations, and judicious in its teachings, of any work on the same subject ever published in our country. More than this, it is a fine illustration of what industry, intelligence, and devotion can accomplish. I give it a hearty welcome. Success to ‘Success with Small Fruits.” -Hon. Marshall P. Wilder
“This book is phenomenal in ever respect. The author brings the graces of a style that have given him a place among the popular writers of the day, to tell how berries are grown, picked, and marketed. The author gives instructions that may be safely followed...Not the least interesting portion of the work, and that which has the best claim to novelty, is the description of strawberry culture in the Southern States.” -Dr. Geo. Thurber, American Agriculturist
“A valuable aid to all who desire to raise their own supply of small fruits, and to such as wish to learn the best modes of obtaining profit by marketing; and it will strongly tend to inspire a taste for fruit-raising in those who make it their introductory teacher.” -J. J. Thomas, Editor, Country Gentleman
“A contribution to American pomology we may all be proud of...It has done for pomology what the works of Downing, F. J. Scott and others have done for other branches of gardening. It has placed it among the fine arts, and while paying full respect to the dollar and cent aspect of small fruit culture, gives us an intellectual treat, rich and rare, which any one might enjoy, though he never set out a strawberry plant, or ate a berry in his life. Every effort to elevate our beautiful art must be welcome to its best friends; and welcome, very welcome will be this beautiful book of Mr. Roe’s. The genuine lover of gardening will extend thanks to author and publisher alike.” -Thomas Meehan, Gardener’s Monthly
“Will find a choice place in the library for the value of its contents.” -New York Tribune
“The text has been very much expanded, so that it stands today as the most complete and thorough treatise on berry culture yet published. The book is not only instructive, but amusing.” -New York Times
“A more clear, full, and intelligent guide to the raising of berries, in all its aspects, agricultural and financial, has never been published.” -Cincinnati Daily Gazette
“The most entertaining work that was ever devoted to the consideration of a horticultural topic. What was merely outlined in Scribner’s Magazine is fully presented in these pages with many interesting additions. If men and women could be lured back to their original calling by words and pictures, this delightful volume would result in many a Paradise Regained. Every one who has a garden, or remembers a garden he once had, or wishes for a garden he never had, will find all these chapters full of interest and fascination.” -New York Observer
“Perhaps the best work on the subject in English.” -Independent, New York
“Combines elegance with utility in an unusual degree...A model of practical common-sense. He suggests nothing but what has been tried and approved, and he rigorously avoids all glittering and deceptive generalizations.” -Harper’s Magazine
