PRICED CATALOGUES OF TREES AND SHRUBS, CONTRIBUTED BY BRITISH

AND CONTINENTAL NURSERYMEN.

The prices of trees and shrubs vary permanently in different countries from permanent causes, and also locally and temporally, in every particular country, from difficulty or facility of cultivation, or from scarcity or abundance. The prices in London, Bollwyller, and New York, as given in the body of this work, after each of the principal species described in it, will convey a sufficiently accurate idea of the comparative prices of ligneous plants in both hemispheres. Nevertheless, we have thought it advisable to publish the following five Catalogues, as well to show the variation in prices in different parts of Europe, as to exhibit a list of names of species and varieties which existed in the year 1838 in British and Continental nurseries.

How far the plants to which these names are applied in the nurseries, are identical with those to which they are applied in this Arboretum, it is impossible for us, in many cases, to say. The reader can only ascertain this by examining the living plants, and comparing them with our descriptions and figures. The greater number of the names in these Catalogues, however, are, we think, correct; though, in the case of some of the genera, such as Cratæ'gus, Quércus, Pinus, &c., this is not likely to be the case with all of the species; and in other genera, such as Sàlix, Ròsa, C'ýtisus, Genísta, Spiræ'a, Cistus, Helianthemum, &c., it cannot be expected that the nurserymen's names should be correct, since scarcely any two botanists are agreed respecting them : nor is correctness in the names of all the species and varieties of some of these genera of much consequence in a practical point of view, provided the more striking kinds are known and propagated. A great improvement in the nomenclature of hardy fruits has been made in British nurseries, by reference to the collection in the Horticultural Society's Garden; and especially by country nurserymen obtaining grafts from the Society, with the names adopted in the Society's Fruit Catalogue attached. Till lately, the same attention was not paid to ornamental trees and shrubs that has, ever since the Society possessed a garden, been paid to fruit trees; but a reformation in this department is now going forward, and, if London nurserymen were to compare their plants and names with the names and plants in the Horticultural Society's Garden, they might be enabled to render their catalogues of them as perfect, and their plants as true to their names, as is now the case with their catalogues and plants of fruit trees. Country nurserymen generally come to London once a year, and, by bringing specimens of their trees and shrubs with them, they might ascertain the correct names by comparing them with the living plants in the Chiswick Garden. As cuttings for propagation, or to be used as botanical specimens for determining the kinds, will, probably, in a short time be spared from the Horticultural Society's Garden, country nurserymen, Fellows of the Society, might

correct their nomenclature by sending for these. One great use of the Arboretum et Fruticetum Britannicum will be, to render the employers of nurserymen, and especially botanical amateurs and ladies, familiar with the correct names of ligneous plants. This will soon create among commercial gardeners a demand for a correct nomenclature, which the nurseryman will supply when he finds it his interest to do so, but not before.

In the following Catalogues, with one exception, no authorities for the names have been given by the nurserymen who sent them. The practice of affixing the autho rities is adopted by all the first nurserymen on the Continent, but is almost always neglected in this country. These Catalogues were prepared before the severe frost of January, 1838, which destroyed many thousands of ligneous plants in British nurseries, and which will probably occasion a temporary rise of price in various articles for a year or two.
