Just as a book on automobiles would undoubtedly fail to tell the reader how to run a garage, so does the average horticultural literature fail to pay much attention to selling methods and business practice. For those who wish to learn about the growing of stock, there is an ample library available; a short list of such books is given in Chapter XIII.
There are, of course, many details that have purposely been omitted from this book (such as the principles Of bookkeeping), for such things need a volume to themselves. Rather have I tried to outline a course of action and of study, and I have tried to present the gloomy as well as the rosier side of the business.
