Horticultural & Botanical History

No data.


History at Camden Park

It was requested of Loddiges’ Nursery, probably for the first time, on 1st February, 1849 [MP A2933-1, p.185].

Macarthur had mixed fortunes with plants received from Loddiges’ and elsewhere at this time and many were dead on arrival.  Some of these are listed in a subsequent letter but it is possible that others arrived alive and were planted in the gardens although never listed in the catalogues.
