Notes

"The first separate gardening book published in Australia, although it was first presented as a series of lectures. The book gives advice on the growing of a very large number of vegetables. It is plainly printed with no illustrations. It lists the vegetables alphabetically and presented detailed instructions for the cultivation of them. Often giving new ideas on how to raise them from seeds." -- Victor Crittenden, Yesterday's gardens.
