From the cover: “The first book written by a Scot with specific Scottish conditions in mind, The Scots Gard’ner by John Reid was originally published in 1683. Divided into two sections, the book deals firstly with planning, surveying and layout and latterly with cultivation. An Appendix entitled “How to Use the Fruits of the Garden” has some claim to be called Scotland’s first cookery book.

A charming gift book and a fascinating insight into the gardening practices of yesteryear, with practical advice, enthusiastically written, The Scots Gard’ner will delight gardening aficionados and general readers alike.”
