vintage garden books from Switzerland


The weather is so nice here and I have plenty of time to be busy with gardening. It's getting an obsession. Here my 3 old gardenbooks from Switzerland. They are all published in the early 40ies.
First is about mushrooms, second one about flowers and plants in house and garden, and the third one about the flowers in the Alps.
Second one is interesting because you can see how the taste changed in 70 years-but I was suprised that they had a lot of succulents and cactus in the swiss villages, which were at this time for sure mostly farmers. The descriptions are simpel but effectiv, no nonsense!
