SPECIAL NOTICE.

LAXTON'S GRAND NEW LARGE FRUITED, EARLY STRAWBERRY FOR 1901.

The "Laxton," THE IDEAL AMATEURS' AND MARKET GROWERS' FRUIT.

The Fruit that everyone must Grow!

A DARKER, FIRMER, AND IMPROVED "ROYAL SOVEREIGN."

We believe this to be by far the =finest= of our many introductions, and in it we claim to have combined all the good points of those two fine varieties from which it was raised, viz, "Royal Sovereign" and "Sir J. Paxton," and believe it to be the most wonderful Strawberry for earliness, size, firmness, quality, hardiness, and vigour of plant combined.

=The following are some of its good points =

=Earliness.= In earliness it is as early as "Royal Sovereign."

=Size.= In size it is as large as, if not larger than, "Sovereign," and certainly larger than "Sir J. Paxton."

=Colour.= But in colour it is much =darker and brighter= than "Sovereign," partaking of the rich colour and taking appearance of "Sir J. Paxton."

=Flavour.= In flavour it is quite as rich as "Royal Sovereign."

=Firmness.= It is also =much firmer= than "Sovereign," does not rot on the ground in damp weather, and is a far better traveller.

=Cropping Qualities.= Its cropping qualities are prodigious, heavier than either "Sovereign" or "Paxton," throwing its bold tresses well above the foliage.

=Constitution.= A very hardy and vigorous grower, retaining its foliage well in winter.

=Fast Selling Out for 1901.= The demand for this variety has been already very large, and as the stock is small and is fast selling out, we must ask for early orders or we shall be unable to execute until 1902. =PLANTS IN POTS ONLY SUPPLIED.=

=PRICE 18s. per doz.; £5 per 100.=

(Not less than 1/2 at the doz. and 100 rates.) As the demand is very great, and the stock limited, the price cannot be much lower for several years. A Handsome Coloured Plate, and full descriptive Catalogue published shortly.

Free on application.
