A rare little book on the cultivation of grapes in pots.

Mearns served as the gardener to the Duke of Portland, following nearly a quarter century as the gardener for Lord Bateman. A fellow to the Royal Horticultural Society, the author was the botanical curator of the Leeds Zoological and Botanical Garden. In the work, Mearns proves "that grapes of superior quality can be produced in pots, and ripened at a comparatively early period" (Preface).
