Laird's Nursery Gardens, St. John's

Laird's Nursery Gardens, St. John's.

These tastefully laid out grounds will repay a visit; especially if the visitor happens to visit them when the flowers are in blossom, the extent of this branch of a most important industry is realized. Almost every kind of flowering and forest shrubs are in stock, the number of native and imported acclimatised plants are legion, while added to these gardens Mr. Laird carries on an extensive business as a seed merchant. Mr. Laird recently paid a visit to Great Britain in order to extend this branch of his business. Any attempt to describe either gardens or stock is out of the question here, but catalogues can always be obtained at the store, Taupo Quay.

The other seed establishment is that of Mr. Hastings Moore, situated in Victoria Avenue, where everything in the shape of seeds for the farm, the plantation, or the flower garden are to be obtained.
