Liberty Hyde Bailey A handsome tender climber with tuberous roots, that may be taken up in the fall and stored in a cellar. The foliage is dark and glossy, the flowers small and inconspicuous; but the small scarlet fruits are very effective in contrast to the leaves, making it a desirable screen plant. It is sold by seedsmen. Seeds sown as soon as warm weather comes will give plants which bloom in the open (in a warm soil and exposure), and which reach a height of 5-8 ft. It is sometimes grown as a glasshouse plant. It is cucurbitaceous (allied to melons and gourds).
Liberty Hyde Bailey Liberty Hyde Bailey was struck, at the start of the 20th century, by the massive movement of people off the land and into cities and suburbs, and he laments the disconnection from the earth that results. A prescient work, Bailey argues that the rural and the agricultural elements in society are fundamental and should not become marginalized, as in fact happened in a dramatic way over the course of the 20th century.
Liberty Hyde Bailey This early work on orchard pests is both expensive and hard to find in its first edition.

We are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork.
Liberty Hyde Bailey & John Linstrom The agrarian tradition runs as an undercurrent through the entire history of literature, carrying the age-old wisdom that the necessary access of independent farmers to their own land both requires the responsibility of good stewardship and provides the foundation for a thriving civilization. At the turn of the last century, when farming first began to face the most rapid and extensive series of changes that industrialization would bring, the most compelling and humane voice representing the agrarian tradition came from the botanist, farmer, philosopher, and public intellectual Liberty Hyde Bailey. In 1915, Bailey’s environmental manifesto, The Holy Earth, addressed the industrialization of society by utilizing the full range of human vocabulary to assert that the earth’s processes and products, because they form the governing conditions of human life, should therefore be understood not first as economic, but as divine. To grasp the extent of human responsibility for the earth, Bailey called for a new hold” that society must take to develop a morals of land management,” which would later inspire Aldo Leopold’s land ethic” and several generations of agrarian voices. This message of responsible land stewardship has never been as timely as now.
