Preface -

I have written this book for the benefit of those who wish to grow suitable plants to provide flowers in a greenhouse or conservatory or to use for room decoration, during all seasons of the year. Plants which do not flower freely and are not of great decorative value have been omitted, and only those which I have found to be ideal for the purpose have been dealt with in this book. There is a vast number of greenhouse plants to be seen in botanical gardens and large private establishments, but only a limited number are offered for sale by nurserymen. From these plant catalogues, which they issue free of charge, I have selected the most decorative kinds and have given the fullest details of their cultivation. Therefore, by choosing plants from the "lists of flowering plants for every season of the year" given on p. 203, it will be found possible to provide a continuous display of flowers in the heated or unheated greenhouse. I am indebted to Messrs. T. Bath and Co., Ltd., Greenhouse Specialists, 14 Norwood Road, Herne Hill, London, S.E. 24, for supplying the photographs of types of greenhouses, ventilators and heating appliances. I am also grateful to Dr. A. J. Willis, Reader in Botany in the University of Bristol, for advice and assistance in the preparation of this book. G. F. GARDINER
