Reader's note

Here is the perfect gift for your green fingered friend! The Gardener's Folklore by Margaret Baker is a collection of old garden beliefs and traditions from all over the British Isles and North America. This delightfully written book shows just what people have believed and still believe will help their plants grow. The observance of lunar and astrological conditions when planting, ways of encouraging fruit bearing and discouraging pests, beliefs about the effects of climate and calendar, spells, the influence of good and bad of certain plants, the links between owners and trees - these are only a few of the aspects of gardening lore that are discussed. Handsomely illustrated throughout - what a wonderful vintage book!
