This antiquarian book contains a guide to allotments produced by the Ministry of Agriculture and Fisheries. Including information on the acquisition and general management of allotments, this text will be of considerable value to anyone with an interest in the subject, and makes for a worthy addition to gardening and plant-growing literature. The chapters of this text include: 'Allotment Associations', 'Soils and Their Treatment', 'Manures and Manuring', 'Lime and Liming', 'Rotation of Crops', 'Potatoes', 'Other Vegetables', 'Fruit', 'Flowers', 'Protecting and Forcing', 'Pests and Diseases', 'The Value of the Demonstration Plots', 'The Economic Value of Allotments', and more. We are proud to republish this vintage book, now complete with a new and specially commissioned introduction on gardening.
