Bunyard has this to say of the opportunities for gardeners' assistants: "A few years ago I wrote you rela- tive to the scarcity of assistant garden- ers and foremen for private estates in America, mentioning the fact that there were good openings for progressive young men willing to work and to adapt themselves to conditions here. At that time your editor took excep- tion, stating that these young men should go to the British Colonies rather than come to the United States. How- ever, a good many young men came over and found positions practically the day they landed. The immigration laws of the United States do not apply to gardeners, owing to the fact that they are classified as personal servants. This may be somewhat a reflection upon fhe profession, but it is nevertheless a fact. I am writing at this time to convey the same information, that there is a paucity here of young gar- deners, more especially in the spring and fall. The wages run from $60 to $75 per month, without board, and $40 to $50 per month with board. The av- erage cost for board and room here for gardeners is about $20 per month. I may at this time state that while gar- dening is not quite so far advanced as in the old country along some lines, there are immense private estates and florists' establishments that compare very favorably with those in Europe. I could cite many instances where as- sistant gardeners have grown up in this country and have now large com- mercial establishments themselves. It all depends upon the man. Should any- one wish to communicate with me on the subject I should be happy to answer.
