Derby Nurseries

Previous - Next

The Derby Nurseries are not at present remarkable. One is occupied by Mr. Palmer, and the other, and larger, by Messrs. Wilson and Sader. The soil is admirably adapted for the growth of trees; and some parts of it are, like the soil at Glazenwood, suitable for growing peat-earth plants without the use of peat. Great improvement is anticipated in this concern, from some recent changes in the proprietorship and management.
