“This is the first book to be published on growing plants under artificial light. Perhaps there has been no greater boon both to the average gardener and the professional grower than the discovery, in our time, of the possibilities of man–made sunlight. In the past, the apartment dweller, the homemaker with only north or west windows and all those who lived where winters were long and dark, had little opportunity to enjoy plants indoors. Today a dark closet, a cellar, a dim hallway, a kitchen counter under a cabinet, an empty bookcase shelf, an unused radio cabinet—are all possible places for flowering plants. And performance will be even better than at the most propitious windows. Greenhouse men have also, to their advantage, increased the “daylight” for their crops by installing light fixtures to take over for some hours after the sun goes down.
When at Barrows we became aware of the marvelous possibilities of this new form of gardening and saw the widespread interest in it, we asked Peggie Schulz, an experienced and enthusiastic grower of plants under light to write a book on the subject. In her Minneapolis home, we saw evidence of her own success with plants under lights. We saw a tremendous number of different subjects thriving in every imaginable cabinet location, and also a whole cellarful of African violets on tables.
This book, another Barrows first, however, is far more than one gardener‘s personal account—yet that is delightfully included. Mrs. Schulz also gives an up–to-date report on the research done by colleges and universities and by electric companies in this fascinating field. As stimulating as her other books on Amaryllis and Gloxinias, this new one on a new subject, Growing Plants Under Artificial Light, opens up amazing possibilities for all who, like Peggie Schulz, enjoy a garden in the house.”
