Die Alpen Pflanzen in der Gartenkultur der Tiefländer Ein Leitfaden für Gärtner und Gartenfreunde

Nature volume 60, page 6 | Download Citation



THIS work is apparently written with a view to do for German gardeners and lovers of alpine flowers what Mr. William Robinson's “Alpine Flower for English Gardens”(published in 1870, but long since-out of print) has accomplished for their British confrères. Indeed, the author has treated his subject on somewhat similar lines. He is head gardener at the Zürich Botanic Gardens, and enjoys the great advantage of being able to study alpine plants in their natural conditions.
