Description

This antique book contains a comprehensive guide on growing melons. It was the original aim of the author to provide the latest information concerning the requirements for growing melons, as to soil and climate, and directions for planting and cultivation which will apply to the small grower for home use as well as to the large commercial grower. The principle species of insects and diseases are also described and remedies recommended. The chapters of this book include: ‘History and Botany of the Melon’, ‘Conditions Affecting Growth’, ‘Soils’, ‘The Seed’, ‘Fertilizers for Melons’, ‘Starting The Plants’, ‘Cultural Methods’, ‘Harvesting and Marketing Melons’, ‘Forcing Melons’, ‘Insects and Diseases’, and ‘List of Varieties’. This book was originally published in 1918, and we are proud to republish it now complete with a new introduction on the subject.
