Greenhouses and Nurseries
Historic Book Collection on CD

Price: $14.97     SKU: B391     Qty:

The Greenhouse and Nursery Historic book collection is a fascinating look at greenhouse and horticulture technologies at the turn of the 20th century. The 41 books in this collection discuss all aspects of greenhouse construction and management, raising food and ornamental plants successfully in a greenhouse environment as well as pest control and other aspects of day to day running of a successful greenhouse.

Since greenhouses are a mature science, much of what is discussed in these books is still in common practice today so the collection also makes an excellent reference set for those looking to do greenhouse gardening in their yards.

Many of the books are heavily illustrated and some have color prints in them.
