Excerpt from Illustrated Weekly Journal of Horticulture in All Its Branches, Vol. 55: Midsummer, 1899

The subject of these notes has been an ardent horticulturist and grower of new and rare plants for many years past, as the volumes of The Garden from the commencement so fully testify. Living in one of the most favoured spots in the British Isles, Mr. Gumbleton has had at Belgrove, his residence on the Great Island in Cork Harbour, advantages exceptionally favourable for experiments in the introduction and acclimatising of plants likely to prove valuable to our gardens. Seeds, bulbs and plants from many parts of the world have found a home here, and the results of trials and comparisons made have been continuously given to the readers of The Garden.

Amongst what would prove too long a list to enumerate as a record of this garden the following are found, and should here be noticed. In 1875, a year before it was in commerce, was bloomed here for the first time in this kingdom the double tuberous Begonia Lemoinei, the precursor of such a splendid strain which now adorns our houses and gardens Then, again, the year 1881 was a notable one, when Eremurus himalaicus, hitherto known only by the specimens in the herbarium at Kew, flowered here for the first time in Europe. And to mention but one more important event which occurred in 1892 - the first flowering of Buddleia Colvillei, a very remarkable shrub from the Himalayas, a plant so distinct from any previously introduced member of that family. The pages of The Garden show that Begonias, Geraniums, hybrid Gladioli, Cannas, flowering shrubs and many other plants have received much attention from Mr. Gumbleton, and his critical notes thereon which have often appeared have no doubt aided many a grower of plants. The collection of plants at Belgrove has provided many subjects for the coloured plates reproduced in the volumes of The Garden, and also for the plates in the Botanical Magazine.
