Overview
Excerpt from Gleanings From French Gardens: Comprising an Account of Such Features of French Horticulture as Are Most Worthy of Adoption in British Gardens

London does from other parts of the British Isles, or even of Eng land. Practically we are under almost the same influences 3 what one succeeds with the other may attempt with confidence. The Parisians get their finest peaches from within a few miles of the city, where they must be grown upon walls as in England and Ireland. Their finer winter pears they also grow upon sunny walls, and they take more pains to protect the blossoms in spring than we do. I well know that their climate is superior to ours for the culture of the pear, but am convinced that the difference in climate is not sufficient to account for our de ficiency with this fine fruit 5 that with well managed and protected walls we can grow a supply of good winter pears for our own markets 5 and emphatically that as good and as cheap peaches may be grown in many parts of England and Ireland as ever were pro duced at Montreuil. Of one thing we may rest assured, that what ever the climate may do, the French fruit-grower does some thing more for his fruit trees than the British one generally does. The attention which is paid to equalizing the sap and keeping the tree thoroughly under control, and the success attained, are some thing quite remarkable. While I write this there is not a good fruit garden in the neighbourhood of Paris but has its walls protected by a wide temporary coping, while in numerous cases with us there is no protection at all, or but a very imperfect one. This fact speaks for itself.
