. Arboretum et fruticetum Britannicum; or, The trees and shrubs of Britain, native and foreign, hardy and half-hardy, pictorially and botanically delineated, and scientifically and popularly described; with their propagation, culture, management, and uses in the arts, in useful and ornamental plantations, and in landscape-gardening; preceded by a historical and geographical outline of the trees and shrubs of temperate climates throughout the world . r timber; but the fruit of N. candicans, N. tomentosa, and N. denticulata, gathered a little before maturity, and pre-served with sugar, forms an agreeable conserve, tasting somewhat like cran-berries.

The different sorts are almost always raised from seeds; and seedswith the names of N. denticulata, N. tomentosa, N. aquatica (N. bifldra), N.candicans, and N. sylvatica, according to Charlwoods Catalogue for 1836, arc sold at s. a packet. Plants, in the London nurseries, are 2s. 6d, each;at Bollwyllcr 2 francs; and at New York, from 25 cents to 1 dollar..
