PART 1 GARDENING CONSIDERED IN RESPECT TO ITS ORIGIN, PROGRESS, AND PRESENT STATE AMONG DIFFERENT NATIONS, GOVERNMEN TS, AND CLIMATES 1. The history of gardening may be considered chronologically, or in connection with that of the different nations who have successively flourished in different parts of the world; politically, as influenced by the different forms of government which have prevailed; and geographically, as affected by the different climates and natural situations of the globe. The chronological history is useful as showing what has been done, and what is the relative situation of different countries as to gardens and gardening; and the political and geographical history affords interesting matter of instruction as to the past and future progress of the art.
