Good Gardening , April 1935

Do you ever long for a glass house? Filled with forced bulbs and exotic species and the perfect place to hold decadent cocktail parties, and hold intellectual conversations on the upkeep of ones pineapple trees. Where the gardening magazines have a column written by a dashing bachelor composer. and they cost just 6D?

I am feeling very gardeny, and have bought lots of bare rooted roses, herbs and spring bulbs in the green. I have potted up terracotta pots with the bulbs, the window is filled with them, sometimes simple is just right. My fingers are black from compost, but I am "in the style of" Jackie O with sleek hair and a set of pearls.
