about

"Flora Domestica" is a 1823 guide to gardening concentrating on potted plants and other 'portable' flora. With detailed descriptions, step-by-step instructions and a wealth of other useful information for each plant treated, this volume offers the reader everything they need to know when working with pot plants. Highly recommended for keen home gardeners and not to be missed by collectors of vintage literature of this ilk. Contents include: "Adonis", "African Lily", "African Marygold", "Agave", "Almond-Tree", "A'loc", "A'maranth", "Amary'ilis", "Andromeda", "Antirrhinum", "Arbor Vitae", "Arbutus", "Aster", "Azalea", "Auicula", "Balm", "Balm of Gildead", "Balsam", "Basil", "Bay", "Belvedere", etc. Many vintage books such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive. It is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially-commissioned new introduction on the history of gardening.
