This work was of major influence for American grape growing, particularly under glass. Chorlton provides tabular data for comparing growth, flowering and fruit development for vines in the hot house versus those grown outdoors. He also discusses all aspects of hot-house management, propagation, pruning, and disease. This was a popular work that went through a number of editions. (Gabler, G16).
