N o attempt has been made to deal with the arts of Culture. They require special treatises, and happily such works have already been published by experienced practical gardeners. Neither has endeavour been made, except brieﬂy, to describe the very numerous varieties of the garden fruits commonly cultivated. Particulars respecting these are given at length in the Catalogues issued every year by the leading fruit-growers. Three of the latter the author here begs to thank very sincerely for supplying him with the names of the sorts they consider supreme - Messrs. Thos. Rivers Sons, Sawbridgeworth; Messrs. R. Smith Sons, Wor cester; and Messrs. R. P. Ker Sons, Liverpool.
