Books by Peter Henderson Online

And who is Peter Henderson, you ask? The short answer is he was an owner of a very successful gardening/seed catalog business in Jersey City, the land upon which New Jersey City University now stands. During his lifetime (1822-1890), he wrote several books on horticulture and gardening; a memoir by his son Alfred, Peter Henderson, gardener, author, merchant, is also online. A very informative entry on Peter Henderson is found in Jersey City Past and Present.
