Excerpt from Home Fruit Grower
Michigan, Illinois, New York, New Jersey, Delaware, Maryland, Virginia, West Virginia, Pennsylvania and Massachusetts, in all of which sections I have either resided or Spent much time with fruit growers. Since my travels in sub-tropical regions have been limited I have been obliged to draw on the experience and Opinions of other fruit growers for judgments and descriptions of such fruits and fruit varieties.
Doubtless the majority of my readers, having small areas at their disposal, need suggestions as to the maximum utilization of available space. They should, therefore, be pleased with the chapters on Laying Out the Plantation, upon Combining Beauty with Comfort and Utility, and updm Dwarf Fruits, also with the ample directions for growing the various Bush Fruits.
I can scarcely urge too strongly that each reader plant at least some of the unusual fruits and fruit-bearing ornamentals, for the novelty and variety of the thing. In this connection special attention may be directed to the few paragraphs on origination of new varieties (see Contents), because at least some of these fruits should prove highly interesting as subjects with which to experiment. Plant breeding, however, is in itself a subject for a far larger volume than this one and can only be mentioned as the most interesting and absorb ing field of all horticultural effort.
