Description of Textbook of General Horticulture


A need for a textbook in general horticulture has existed for many years. Particularly 'is this true in the agricultural colleges that require such a course in many of the departmental curriculums. This general course in horticulture varies in the agricultural colleges. Some departments give the student a choice between a course in vegetable crops and a course in fruit crops. Some give plant propagation as the general course. 

Some term the course "general horticulture" and then proceed to devote most of the work to fruits or to vegetables, depending upon the personal interests of the instructor. Again, there are instances where the course is handled by several instructors during the semester or quarter. In the latter instance a fruit specialist will give the fruit work, and a vegetable specialist the vegetable work and a florist may give the ornamental phases.
