[From Journal of a Horticultural Tour through some parts of Flanders, Holland, and the North of France, in the Autumn of 1817, by Patrick Neill, 1823, p. 457-468:] 1821, Aug. 17.- I spent the greater part of this day in the celebrated pepiniere of L. Noisette, No. 51, Fauxbourg St Jacques, near the National Observatory....Thev roses are disposed in Groups or families, according to the general characters of their foliage and flowers, and the original species from which they are supposed to have been derived. M. Noisette has contrived to arrange no fewer than twenty-six groups, and to enumerate varities to the amount of 600. Many of these, of course, have but slender claims to distinction. But he is constantly making experiments and raising new varieties from seed, and he collects from every quarter. A new rose of considerable beauty, allied to Rosa Indica, but with pale and sweet-scented flowers, has lately had the name of Rose de Noisette bestowed on it.

[From The Gardener's Magazine, 1828, p. 14:] Noisette's Nursery is one of the oldest about Paris. It appears to occupy between 6 and 18 acres; contains a tolerable collection of green-house and some hot-house plants under glass; a moderate collection of hardy trees an shrubs; and an extensive collection of roses, standards, and dwarfs.
