The Horticultural Register, Vol. 3
Excerpt from The Horticultural Register, Vol. 3: And General Magazine, of All Useful Interesting Discoveries Connected With Natural History and Rural Subjects Amongst oth'er excellent papers in this volume, we may notice those on Chemistry, as connected with the Developement and Growth of Plants, by the Author of the Domestic Gardener's Manual, which to young Gardeners and Amateurs in particular are of great importance, and to the experienced practical man they will not be without their value. The system of propagating Vines, by coiling the branches in pots, is cleverly advocated and explained by Mr. Mearns, whose well known abilities render his remarks dou bly valuable, because they may be entirely depended upon. The mode of successfully growing Vines in Pots is again taken up by Mr. Stafford and others; this cannot be too much recommended, indeed we hope to see the day, when the Culture of Vines in Pots shall be generally adopted, not to the exclusion of those on the Rafters, but as auxiliaries to supply the table at seasons when it would be inconvenient or dificult to put those on the Rafters into action. A Classification of Garden Peas, including the height, qualities, season of use, &c. Is given by Mr. Townsend, which, as a remembrancer to the experienced, and to assist in the instruction of the young Gardener, will be very useful. The system of Heating with hot-water is also explained at length, and Engravings given explanatory of the same, together with many other things of general utility.
