Abstract

It is well known by gardeners that different kinds of plants
must have different kinds of soil provided for them, in order
that they may grow to the best advantage.It ought to be
well known to agriculturists too, but they generally seem to
pursue their operations without reflecting upon the matter,

as though they regarded, for the most part, all kinds of soil
as being capable of nourishing whatever sorts of plants are
inserted in them.
