The Flower City: Horticultural Leadership » Frost Nursery Grounds

Nurseries of A. Frost & Co., Rochester—Entrance and Green-Houses.

A. Frost & Co., Rochester, (south of and near the city)—1848 —200 acres—one of the largest and most complete nurseries in the Union, with extensive ranges of green and hot houses, and a rich assortment of fruit trees and ornamentals. The proprietors are eminently successful in raising evergreens from seed, of which they have an extensive supply, and in the propagation of new blackberries, raspberries, and other small fruits.

From The Illustrated Annual Register of Rural Affairs and Cultivator Almanac, for the Year 1859
