EASY-TO-GROW FLOWERING SHRUBS

It is impossible to give a complete list of all the hundreds of shrubs that might be grown in a garden. The beginner should study the descriptive catalogues of the best nurserymen for further advice. To guide readers, here is a list of shrubs which I have found amenable to the normal cultivation of gardens in almost all parts of the country. The kinds and varieties mentioned will give satisfaction and will prove a splendid introduction to any flowering shrub border of the future.
