This section is from the book "The Gardener V1", by William Thomson. Also available from Amazon: The New Organic Grower: A Master's Manual of Tools and Techniques for the Home and Market Gardener.
The Gardener's Magazine for April, in which we notice that the editor is giving some capital papers on "Garden Ivies; or, A study of Hedera," which, in addition to being ably written, are also well illustrated.
Also the Food Journal for April, a valuable magazine, treating of social and sanitary economy, and which is also a monthly record of food and public health. In the pages of this magazine, all adulterations are mercilessly exposed with much vigour and courage; and the several papers are of a very interesting character.
Also parts 7 and 8 of vol. xi. of the Journal of the Royal Horticultural Society, with extracts from the proceedings of the same, and miscellaneous matter.
