Excerpt from Wells' Book on the Culture of the Chrysanthemum: For Exhibition, Decoration, Cut Flower, and Market, With Numerous Woodcuts and Photographs of the Different Breaks, Insects Pest, Etc

I am desirous of making my book on the cultivation of chrysanthemums as up-to-date as possible, and with this object in view I have found it imperative to re-write the greater part of the last edition, especially the chapters giving the names of the best varieties in each section. There have been so many improvements in every way within the last few years that a reprint of the old matter would be in some respects misleading. But on the subject of culture, etc., I can add very little to that which I have already published, and therefore I have allowed this portion of my previous book to remain.

Of late, newer chrysanthemums easy to cultivate have received considerable attention, and great strides have been made - more particularly with the early flowering varieties. This class of chrysanthemum has much to recommend it. It may be raised by persons of the most limited means; it makes a fine Autumn display for beds and borders; or it may be grown in thousands for cut flowers for market. The initial cost is not more than that of the usual bedding-out plants, and therefore early flowering 'mums are within the reach of thousands who cannot buy the more expensive varieties. It will be found that I have treated this section at some length in Chapter VI.

It has always been my wish to advise and encourage amateurs who desire to exhibit, for there is nothing like the friendly rivalry of an exhibition - whether of chrysanthemums or other flowers - to deepen the interest of growers, and thus ensure blooms being brought to their greatest perfection. A desire to excel in some special way is universal. There are comparatively few people who do not pride themselves on being able to "go one better" than their neighbours.
