Handbook of Nature Study: Cultivated Plants

by Anna B. Comstock

Description: The tenth section of Handbook of Nature Study opens with the flowers of spring, first those that grow from corms and bulbs, and then the others. Continuing on through the year, it describes the flowers in the order of blooming. The section concludes with a discussion of clovers and cotton as important field crops, and strawberries, corn, and pumpkins as food crops of particular interest to children.
