"Jacques," page 189, speaks of what English gardeners are doing in this way. The finest set of hybrid Nepenthes I ever saw was at Such's Nurseries, South Amboy, N. J., and some of these same hybrids are named, figured, described and sent out by English nurserymen. But in no case have I seen the credit given to the raiser, namely. Mr. James Taplin, of Maywood, N. J., and who was for years manager of Mr. Such's place. Certainly Mr. Taplin is an Englishman, and one of the best practical gardeners who ever came to America, but the work he does in America we will claim as American.
