“The Gardeners' Chronicle has faithfully held to its promises. It is still, to-day, the best gardening journal, being indispensable equally to the practical gardener and the man of science, because each finds in it something useful. We wish the journal still further success.”—Garten Flora, Berlin, Jan. 15.
“The Gardeners' Chronicle is the leading horticultural journal of the world, and an historical publication. It has always excited our respectful admiration. A country is honoured by the possession of such a publication, and the greatest honour we can aspire to is to furnish our own country with a journal as admirably conducted.”—La Semaine Horticole, Feb. 13, 1897.
“The Gardeners' Chronicle is the most important horticultural journal in the world, and the most zenerally acknowledged authority.”—Le Moniteur d'Horticulture, Sept., 1898.
