Re: Cmas present


It's interesting stuff, actually. He warns about keeping the temps up because if frost "reaches the earth of your orange trees, it will cause all the fruit to drop off, and many times a great part of the leaves also." And he advises "Pine apples, which begin now to shew [sic] heads of fruit, must be carefully looked after, observing to refresh them frequently with water...."

Bought myself a present this year, which just arrived. It's Philip
Miller's "The Gardeners Kalendar; Directing what Works are necessary
to be done every month in the Kitchen, Fruit, and Pleasure-Gardens, as
also in the Conservatory and Nursery." 11th edition; 1757. It's a bit
worse for wear but quite legible. Calfskin binding and good rag paper.
Altogether, it's in pretty good shape for being 250 years old.
