THE

FLORAL WORLD

AND

GARDEN GUIDE.

EDITED BY

SHIRLEY HIBBERD, Esq., F.R.H.S.

PUBLISHED MONTHLY, PRICE SIXPENCE.

ANNUAL SUBSCRIPTION SIX SHILLINGS.

A Specimen Number sent post free for Seven Stamps.

GROOMBRIDGE & SONS, 5, PATERNOSTER Row, LONDON,

AND ALL BOOKSELLERS.

A very few words will tell the object of "THE FLORAL WORLD.'

'THE FLORAL WORLD' is devoted entirely to Gardening Subjects, and no subsidiary topics are allowed to interfere with the full consideration of these, as represented in the several departments of Plant Houses, Flower, Fruit, and Vegetable Culture, Garden Scenes and Embellishments, the Management of Allotment Lands, Flower Shows, and Horticultural Botany.

These are severally treated in a simple and practical manner by experienced pens, and the fullest attention is given to communications from Correspondents, whether seeking or conveying information.

Gardening Amateurs want information on all sorts of subjects: they want to ask questions, and to get civil answers; and often they desire to have a whole code of some special department of Plant Culture condensed into the compass of a nutshell. They are growers of Flowers, Fruits, and Vegetables, and many of them exhibitors in each of these three departments; and to keep pace with the times, they need to be informed, from month to month, what is going on in "The Floral World,” what new plants have been introduced from "far countries," what new sorts have been raised at home, and, perhaps, more important still, what, among the immense numbers of varieties we possess, deserve to be retained, improved, and preserved.

For amateurs with moderate means, and ambition to excel in the various practices of Horticulture, and in the floral decoration of the garden, greenhouse, conservatory, and the windows of the dwelling, 'THE FLORAL WORLD' will be found a cheap and practical medium of intelligence and intercommunication, its price within the means of all, and, it is trusted, so planned as to be universally acceptable.
