Lacock Abbey

May the 3rd 1830


On last friday morning I received a letter from Andw Henderson & Son <1> nurserymen Pine apple place <2>, mentioning that they have sent the following plants Pr the Chippenham waggon – which H. F. Talbot Esqe had purchased at their nursery

1 Erica Regerminans
1 – <3> Nigretta
1 Cineraria Cruenta
1 Alonsia Urticifolia
1 Genista Canariensis
1 Spungelia incarnata
1 Lobelia Coronopifolia
1 Lachnea Ericifolia
1 Diosma Capitata
1 Chorizema Nana
1 Linum flavum
1 Puttenia Stricta
1 Geum Coccineum

they came by Farmers waggon I received them on Saturday morning in a very good state and securely packed I hope the Geum Coccineum will seed – I have seen it seed in the neighbourhood of London last Summer – it does very well turned out in beds in Summer but I think it is better to try and seed this in the pot
