S. P., Del. Co., Pa., writes: " There was a long article in the Practical Farmer, some years ago, on Zea Mays, our common Indian corn, in which the writer says that it could only be grown in North America, between Canada and the Gulf of Mexico, and East of the Rocky Mountains, which is denied by almost every one who visits may house. He said it could not be grown in any other part of the world. Please answer through the Gardener's Monthly.
[The misunderstanding arises, probably, from the form of expression, "only be grown in North America." The writer's meaning, no doubt, was that in North America it can be only grown within the limits named. As a matter of fact, it is grown in many other parts of the world. - Ed. G. M].
