Heirloom references from 1884-1889 Gardening book available
My mother rescued four books from an Agricultural library book sale titled "The Illustrated Dictionary of Gardening - An Encyclopeadia of Horticulture for Gardeners and Botanists" edited by George Nicholson. They were published from 1884 to 1889. She recently gave me the set and I've noticed that the vegetable sections list the "sorts" popular at the time. Sometimes the varieties have a lot of detail included, sometimes just the names are listed. Would anyone be interested in this information? If you are looking for the history of a specific vegetable, I might be able to help. I have a scanner and could copy some pages.
