Letter from Gertrude Jekyll to Mrs Brand [Amy Barnes Brand]

Scope and Content

Written from Munstead Wood, Godalming, [Surrey]. Manuscript.

Jekyll will send her plants on Tuesday; she will not be able to send Spiraea venusta in the spring as a recent big order left her with only three, which she needs to increase her stock; she is also out of dwarf Iris pseudacorus and tritonias as all her young ones died in the winter; she has no gunneras; she will send three Bambusa metake, and if she has them, garland rose and sea buckthorn. Dated 14 Oct [1929; an invoice dated 23 Apr 1930 records that three Bambusa metake were sent on 20 Oct 1929, which was a Tuesday, see JEK/2/1/48]. With envelope
