Flower Garden Rules

A solitaire that is neither as easy to win as it looks on paper, nor as difficult as it seems when you first try it. Layout —Deal six rows of six cards each, forming the garden (tableau). Each row should overlap the one above. (See diagram.) Spread the remaining sixteen cards of the pack below the garden to form the bouquet (reserve). Foundations —The four aces, as they become available, are to be moved to a row above the garden and built up in suit to kings. Play —Every card of the bouquet is available for building on foundations or garden piles. The bottom card of each column of the garden is available for building on foundations or on another pile. Garden cards are moved singly and may be built downward, regardless of suit. A space in the garden, by removal of an entire pile, may be filled by any available card.
