In presenting the present Catalogue to the public, the Proprietors do not consider 
it necessary to say more to their old friends and patrons than that, in future, their bu- 
siness will be conducted in a manner worthy of the long-established reputation of the 
Linnsean Botanic Nurseries, and that no exertions will be spared to make every trans- 
action satisfactory, in all respects, to those with whom they may have dealings. 

Those unacquainted with this Establishment, we would refer to the fact that these 
Nurseries were established in 1732, and have continued uninterruptedly in the same vil- 
lage, and in the possession of the same family, since that time— a period of One Hun- 
dred and Thirty one years — longer, we believe, than any other business establishment, 
of any nature whatever, in this country, has existed under the same name ; that from 
this Establishment nearly all the great Iluropean Nurseries have obtained their collec- 
tions of American Trees and Plants, and that it has, at different times, supplied the Royal 
and Imperial Horticultural Establishments of Great Britain, Russia, Austria, Prussia, 
Egypt, Mexico, and numerous less important States. 

We believe that no establishment which does not combine enterprise and energy 
with perfect accuracy, could so long and successfully have retained its reputation and 
the confidence of the public. 

In arranging the present Catalogue, we have thought it unnecessary to add descrip- 
tions to the varieties of fruits, (with the exception of a few of the newer and less-known 
kinds.) as such information is now easily accessible to all at very small expense, either 
in Horticultural Periodicals, the Reports of Pomological Societies, or in Downing's 
Fruit Book, and other kindred works. 

AVe would refer also to the large Descriptive Catalogues which have baen gratui- 
tously disseminated from this Establishment, through all sections of the Union, at large 
expense for a long series of years. 

We need scarcely state' that our Catalogues are not made up from books only, but 
that we possess every article comprised in them. Much pains is taken in procuring 
new varieties, as soon as they are proved worthy of cultivation, at the same time that 
care is exercised not to offer to our customers varieties only known for their novelty 
before their qualities shall have been fully tested. 

Within a comparatively short time, a large addition has been made to the amount 
of land under cultivation in our Nurseries, by the purchase of an extensive plot of ex- 
cellent farm land, very favorably situated ; the trees grown on which are now offered 
for sale. 

The natural strength and fertility of the soil of this locality is such, that it ensures a most 
healthy and vigorous growth to the trees, which seem to become hardened and confirmed as 
they progress, and is devoid of that rank, stimulated, and unnatural exuberance which trees so 
generally exhibit when reared on lands that have never been subjected to previous culture. 
The Trees thus cultivated, after making at first a rapid development, are so sensitive to cold, 
that the winter easily alfects them, and they gradually pine away till they become feeble and 

The climate of Long Island being subject at all times to the boisterous winds of the 
Ocean and the Sound, seems to be particularly favorable to perfecting the hardihood of Trees. 
The vaccillation of alternate cold and mild periods during the winter, accompanied by the frequent 
freezings and thawinga to which trees are here subject throughout all stages, prepares them for 
the endurance of the utmost degree of cold and rigor incident to the most northern latitude ; 
it being found that trees, like men, become much more hardened in a changeable climate than 
in one regularly cold where the constitution is not subjected to trials. 

it is doubtless from this cause that the Long Island trees, with which New England has 
been generally supplied, and also those which have been sent to the coolest regions of the 
"V* est, have been found to better withstand the severest winters, than those which have been 
obtained from other laealilies. Indeed it can be readily realized that trees so robust and 
hardy, and yet so vigorous, must possess a great superiority over those grown in localities 
where the mercury sinks each year to 10° and 20° below zero during a very prolonged winter, 
thus retaining the trees in a frozen, torpid and death-like state for many months, freezing and 
bursting the inner vessels, affecting the sap, and weakening them to such a degree that they 
can never regain their original health and strength. Some lessons may be derived from the 
fatal experience of recent winters at the West, to which may be superadded the inconsiderate 
use by many nurseries of unsuitable stocks for budding and grafting, and especially of the 
comparatively tender Mazzard stock for Cherries, instead of the hardy Mahaleb, the latter 
being much better Buited to the North and West, 

All the Trees which we oiler arc in the most healthy and vigorous state, and will be sup- 
plied at the rates named in the present Catalogue; and it may be taken as a rule that we will

The culture of this delicious fruit has recently become an object of particular at- 
tention, and the Trees require no more care or protection in winter than the delicate 
kinds of Grapes, and can be grown at Baltimore, and south of it, in any quantities for 
market ; and we may soon expect the markets of New-York, and other Northern cities, 
to be supplied from the more Southern localities. The Trees are exceedingly produc- 
tive, and produce two regular crops in a season. We have rejected a number of varie- 
ties, Rich as Cypre, Clementine, &c, which have been found the least worthy of culture. 

Those marked J, 35 cents. Those not marked are 75 cents. When a dozen are 
tnken of <I Varieties, 2 pach, the price will be $4 50.

All the varieties are red except those designated otherwise, and all mature their fruit 
in July except the Twice Bearing kinds, and they produce a second crop in September 
or October. In order to have an ample crop of autumnal fruit, it is necessary to prune 
off the old shoots entirely iu February or beginning of March, as the autumnal iruit is 
produced entirely ou the shoots of the same year. There are no Monthly Raspberries ; 
but only Twice Bearing ones. The leading varieties can be supplied by the thousand 
at reduced rates. N. B. — Any number less than a dozen will be charged higher.

£@°" The first four varieties named below are all of American origin, and are not 
subject to mildew ; they do not, however, compare with the English varieties in size, 
although, from their wonderful productiveness, they produce greater crops. 

In consequence of the almost universal difficulty from mildew experienced with the 
English Gooseberries, we have discontinued the culture of a great many varieties, and 
can only supply them in limited quantities.

Scions of all kinds of Fruit Trees, suitable for grafting-, will be supplied when 40 or 
more kinds are ordered, more or less of each, as convenient to us, at 25 cents per 
parcel, or at 50 cents per dozen grafts of each variety where the price of a tree 
does not exceed that sum (50 cents); but where it does, the same price will be 
charged for the dozen scions, or for a parcel where the kind is very rare, as for a 
tree of the same kind. When a large number of scions are wanted, of the leading 
varieties, they will be supplied at $1 50 per 100 ; or at the following rates per 
1000, all correctly labelled : Apples, $5, Pears, $6, Cherries, $6, Plums, $10. 

Scions of Anger's Quince, for budding Pears on, $1 50 per 100, and $10 per 1000, and 
Scions of the plentiful kinds of Currants, Gooseberries, Raspberries, Berberries, 
Mulberries, Poplars, Willows, Altheas, Roses, and all other Trees and Shrubs that 
will grow from cuttings, $2 50 per 100 and $20 per 1000, and Figs and Pomegran- 
ates $5 to $8 per 100 ; but no quantity is sent amounting to less than the price of 
a Tree or Shrub of the same kind. Scions of the eight finest species of Osiers, 
most celebrated for baskets, &c, Si per 100 and $2 to $5 per 1000. It is better 
that such orders be sent in the fall or winter ; and the scions can be forwarded 
by express if so ordered. 

Scions of Grapes, of a number of the finest kinds, can be supplied if applied for in sea- 
son, at from $4 to $8 per 100, or in less quantities; but in no case will scions of 
any variety be sent to a less amount than the price of a vine ; and of the very 
rare varieties three eyes, and of others, six eyes of any one variety will be consid- 
ered equivalent in value to a vine. Scions of Isabella, Catawba, Clinton, and sev- 
eral other varieties $2 per 100, or $8 to $12 per 1000. 

GREEN-HOUSE TREES and PLANTS, can be supplied at reasonable rates.

The following comprise a Select Assortment of the most beautiful and estimable 
species, which our long experience lias ©babied us to arrange with precision. The in- 
ferior species we have omitted. 

We have divided them into four classes. The first class comprises those of ma- 
jestic growth, which attain great stature and ample development; the second class 
ihose which attain a medium size : the third class, those of low stature ; and the fourth 
class, such as are comparatively of slow growth, requiring a long period before they 
attain the size of a small tree, and which, therefore, it would be more appropriate, in 
ornamenting grounds, to rank among large Shrubs. 

The prices stated are for trees of fair size ; but where extra large-sized trees are 
desired for Streets, Avenues, Arc., in order to impart immediate ornament, such can be 
supplied at proportionate rates, varying in height from ten to twenty feet, of many of 
the most estimable species. 

For Amygdalus, Carya, Castarea, Diospyros, Juglans, Mespiius, Morus, Prunus, 
Pyrus. &c, see Fruit and Nut Trees.

be plainly and regularly made out, naming the edition of the Catalogue selected from,

is also necessary to state in the orders for Fruit Trees, whether Standards or Dwarfs are

Visitors.— Visitors are at all times welcome to our grounds, in which something 
of interest is to be seen at almost any season. The village of Flushing is accessible 
ten or more times a day, by Steamboat and Railroad, from Fulton Market and James 
Slip, New- York, and by carriage from Hunter's Point, opposite 34th Street. One of 
the fcursenes adjoins the R. R. Depot, while another is next to the Steamboat Landing, 
and the third and largest is about a mile from the village, in a southerly direction. 


We annually ship large numbers of Trees, Plants, Bulbs, Seeds, «fcc, to 
Europe, California, Oregon and other distant parts of the world, and have such 
.experience in packing for long voyages that the articles arrive at their des- 
tination in the best of order. 

Persons desiring articles sent to foreign countries, therefore, need have no 
hesitation in ordering, as our perfect system of packing insures success. 

We subjoin a note received from the Director of the Prussian Garden at 
Potsdam, a short time since, to show the excellent condition in which our 
articles arrive abroad :—
