The Family Garden, by Marguerite James (Harrap, 6s.) Reviewed by GERALD WYNNE RUSHTON " Nowadays garden books by the score issue from town offices, still redolent of paste and scissors," says Lady Seton in her prefatory note to Miss Marguerite James's The Family Garden, but her remark does not apply to this book which is quite admirably done.
1 have reviewed several gardening books in these columns-and it is seldom that I have reviewed one with as much sound sense and clear instruction as is to be found in this volume.
The section Gardening for Flat Dwellers is NOT only very useful but very interesting and will be of immense value to that I large army of dwellers in lofty eyries who Imust miss their garden more than anything lelse in the world.
Miss James shows the flat-dwellers how they can have a succession of plants from January to December. And I hope flat dwellers will be correspondingly grateful and buy this really admirable volume.
