This book is designed for use as a tex and guide in modern high school and collges in agriculture extends through two or more years, one of which is devoted to horticulture. This book will prove of most value if the suggestions regarding study of actual specimens of fruits, twigs, etc., are followed indetail and trees are actually planted and pruned by the tudents. Similarly, seed boxes should bemade and seeds planted, hotbeds contructed and cared for, insects caught and identified. A list of suggested home projects suitable for the various seasons of the year is given in Appendix. Only two branches of horticulture are considered in these studies, namely, fruit culture and vegetable gardening. The other two brances, floriculture and landscape gardening are left for more advanced study after the high-school work is completed. The plan for these studies contemplates concentrationupon a few subjexts rather than a generat survey of many subjects. The aim here has been to select crops which lend themselves most readily to culture in the home projects of the students. Vegetableshave been chosen for which there is usually a consistent demand at the table or in the market, and forwhich the cultural requirements can usually be met under the conditions of soil and environment likely to obtain in village back yards, vacant town lots, or the corner of a field on the farm. Few references to literature accour in the text.
