Nowadays many people are cultivating an allotment or a vegetable garden for the first time, and any practical assistance that can be given to them should be really useful in saving them from unnecessary expense and in enabling them to grow enough garden produce to keep themselves and their families. As our work has for many years brought us daily in touch with the best methods of cultivation of vegetables, it seemed possible that our past experience might be of value to those who are beginners, and even to many accustomed to the pleasure of gardening. In this little book only those things will be recommended which our own experience has proved to be satisfactory, no operation will be described- which it is not our practice to perform, and we shall endeavour to point out pitfalls into which the unwary or ignorant are likely to fall.
