This section is from the book "The Gardener's Monthly And Horticulturist V20", by Thomas Meehan. See also: Four-Season Harvest: Organic Vegetables from Your Home Garden All Year Long.
The forestry exhibit from the nurseries of Thomas Meehan, of Germantown, and which went on the"Constitution" with the others from Philadelphia, for the Paris Exhibition, is not included in the recently published Philadelphia list of exhibitors, because at the request of General Le Due it was transferred from General McCormick's special list in order to make part of the National exhibit under the auspices of the department of Agriculture. So far as we have heard this is the only American nursery that will be represented there. If there are others we will gladly publish them. The same firm, as already stated,desired to make an exhibit of over eight hundred species and varieties of living trees, but was prevented by the strictness of the French rules.
