With the growth of the new taste
for cua flowers the cultivation of small
flower gardens may become a source
of unexpected revenue to countless
homes. Many valuable plants can be
made profitable with care, even in a
small back yard or in a sunny room,
and certainly no more agreeable home
industry for women can be imagined.
The work demands fitness, patience
and unremitting care, but it pays rich
dividends for the amounts invested.
