Excerpt from Tilton's Journal of Horticulture and Florist's Companion, 1870, Vol. 7

Rules for practice are promulgated as if they were of universal, instead of being only of special, application. The difficulty of establishing practical rules, that would he universal in their nature, or uniformly successful, arises in part from the varied action of the agents of vegetation, and the almost infinite degrees of their individual modifications under varied circumstances, such as are dependent upon soils and climates, moisture and aridity, heat and cold. No rules can be given that will he of equal force or application in every case; the practice perfectly adapted to one soil and situation would be altogether unsuited to another if differently circumstanced. One thing, however, is certain - that all successful practice is based upon the laws or principles that govern vegetable growth; and all successful results, no matter how contradictory their origin may appear to be, are capable of being referred to the same unvarying principles, could we hut trace their progress through all stages of development.

In view, therefore, of the many apparently conflicting opinions which must necessarily be given in the enunciation of merely practical rules (and which may he either right or wrong, according to existing peculiarities), it becomes a question of some importance, and one well worthy of serious consideration by all who are interested in the welfare and efficiency of horticultural literature, whether more real progress in the spread of useful knowledge would not follow the promulgation of principles only, thus enabling every person to deduce a practice suited to the conditions by which lie is surrounded, instead of publishing the thousand and one minute routine details of as many individuals, alt varied as to certain peculiarities of time, place, and season ; at the same time producing precisely the same, or very similar results.

It is time that horticulture should he treated more as an exact science than it hitherto has been.
