Irish Gardening, Vol. 12 free pdf Excerpt from Irish Gardening, Vol. 12 This is a subject of vital importance at the present time, and intimately concerns every gardener, whether amateur or professional. The production of the greatest possible quantity of food material should be the aim and object of every person who has the smallest plot of ground available. In times of peace and plenty the owner of a very small garden, perhaps only a strip of a few yards behind his house, probably gets more value out of flower culture considering that vegetables are usually to be had at reasonable prices in the greengrocer's- but many causes have operated in the last two years to make the succulent cabbage and other vegetables scarce and dear. Scarcity of labour has been one of the chief causes, and it is not likely to be abated for some time. During the ensuing year therefore we earnestly urge everyone to utilise to the full every spare corner of ground in growing vegetables for home consumption, and if a surplus should result, then many a one with absolutely no garden would doubtless be glad to receive a portion, and thus a work of national importance may be done by all who have a garden. No harm whatever would be done to the professional market gardener, since our large cities contain thousands of inhabitants who yet have no gardens, and it is obvious from the prices charged and the frequent scarcity that the supply is not equal to the demand. Gardeners, in a much greater degree than farmers, have long ago learned the value of intensive cultivation, and even Mr. Wibberley might perhaps gain a few hints in a well-managed market garden from the rapidity with which one crop follows another and in the value of deep cultivation in maintaining the soil in a high state of fertility. Private owners with large gardens in charge of a capable gardener will have no difficulty in maintaining large supplies, and on them devolves a duty in assisting the Vegetable Products Committee to supply our sailors with sufficient vegetables while at sea. If this ghastly war has no other result than that it bestirs thousands of cottagers and suburban dwellers to dig and plant their too often neglected gardens, then it will have done a world of good. There are doubtless many with but a vague idea of how to set about cultivating and cropping a plot of ground, and with a view to helping such we have secured a writer who has considerable experience in instructing beginners and who has taken an important part in laying out some of the most successful allotments in Ireland. Month by month he will indicate the chief operations necessary to get the most out of small gardens, while useful reminders of current work each month will be contributed by writers in the north and south respectively. It is our earnest hope that during the year just commencing no land at all capable of production will be found anywhere in Ireland uncropped, and of those who own or rent gardens, large or small, let it not be said as it is in Scripture - "I went by the field of the slothful, and by the vineyard of the man void of understanding. And, it was all grown over with thorns, and nettles had covered the face thereof... I looked upon it, and received instruction."
