Country Life


It was my good fortune earlier in the year to visit a garden in Worcestershire which has since, I hear, won a prize for the best of its sort in the five western counties. Mr. Nott and his On, who are the chief authors and begetters of its various perfections, are also philosophers ; they concern themselves with the causes, economic, social and biological which make or Thar success in farming, especially in the growing of fruit for profit ; and their opinions acquire a certain extra momen- tum from the verdict of the judges. If it is decided that they can manage a garden better than other people this gives pre- sumptive evidence that they know what pays or fails to pay, and why.
