Laurence McKinney had studied seed catalogs and garden books, trudged through flower shows and exhibition gardens, and talk to gardeners, men, women and children. With a variety, both uncommon and garden, he wrote about planting, transplanting, seeding, re-seeding, dusting, spraying, tilling, and tickling the soil. He had even worked in a perennial border himself. But he had always found a vicarious form of gardening easier on the knee-caps, even though it may not be so beneficial to the waistline.
