List of. Although the gardener would have to set up a druggists store if he were to keep all the cherriicals in the list below by him, he should nevertheless keep by him small quantities of the more important and useful chemicals v/hich are marked with an asterisk. The quantity he will want will vary from an ounce or two in the case of Hellebore Powder to a hundredweight or so of such as Nitrate of Soda. The chemicals in the list are mostly given under their true chemical names, but a few popular names such as I.iver of Sulphur (Potassium Sulphide) are included. It is assumed that the reader is aware that Nitrate of Potash is the same as Potassium Nitrate, Nitrate of Lime the same as Calcium Nitrate, Nitrate of Soda the same as Sodium Nitrate, and so on. It should, however, be specially noted that”Chloride of Lime”is not Calcium Chloride but Calcium Hypochlorite, an oxidised and lower grade compound. List of Garden Chemicals. Acid Sodium Phosphate.
