The Joy of Achievement
Is the Reward of the Gardener
who sees his garden come to fruition in that satisfying degree for which he hoped when the seed was sown in Spring. This joy connes not only to the amateur, but also to the skilled professional. It is not only the result of producing beautiful flowers, but also of obtaining an abundant crop of perfectly formed, deliciously flavored, true to type vegetables. Such is the Joy of planters of Henderson’s seeds, not only throughout the United States, but also in many foreign countries. This is attested to by the thousands of letters we receive yearly from satisfied customers.
To us this serves as an inspiring stimulus to improve our service and seed stocks. This year sees the 90th anniversary of the foundation of our business, and we, the third generation of Hendersons, are confident that our firm was never better equipped to serve the wants of the American Gardening public. Besides our complete stocks of standard flower and vegetable seeds, we offer many interesting and valuable novelties. On pages 52 and 53 will be found the outstanding flower seed debutantes of 1937; on page 19 the New Henderson Bush Cucumber, which makes it possible to grow superior cucumbers in even the smallest garden, and on page 21 our superb New Sweet Corn x 100. At the request of many customers, we have again added our Plant section to this catalog, pages 98 to 122. Here many new Roses, as well as other valuable plants will be found.
With our sincerest thanks for the valued patronage of our loyal friends and customers, and with the hope that they, as well as our new found friends, will experience every joy of garden achievement during the coming season.
