has a host of old gardening books (from mid-19th to mid-20th Century) available in many formats and on a host of topics. I happened across a few in my Pinterest feed and gone completely down the rabbit hole in this treasure trove of information. Sure some ideas might be out of date, but you never know what you might find when you explore these catalogs. I’ll be sharing more catalogs as I find them in the coming weeks. –Douglas

SO MANY readers of The Toronto World have made inquiries as to whether it is possible to obtain the articles on The Garden, by Rachael R. Todd, M. D., in pamphlet form, that Mr. W. N. Wilkinson, managing editor, has compiled a series of these articles, dealing with spring planting and the care of the garden during the spring and summeT. This is the first volume, and will be followed by one in the fall, containing hints on planting, the growing of bulbs and care of flowers during the autumn and winter. Care has been taken by the editor in revising the matter for this volume to eliminate extraneous matter. As each article deals with some one subject only, the index at the end of the book, will enable a quick reference to it. Rachel R. Todd, M. D., C. M.
