S. B.B., Warrenton, Va., sends us samples of seedling Geraniums of that class once known as " Scarlets," but now known as " Bedding Geraniums." There are now such an immense number of these that it will not do to say that they are superior to the best of those under culture, but they are certainly very good as far as we can judge from these specimens. But the full value of this class of plants can scarcely be determined by such specimens. They have to be grown side by side with the best, and the growth and habit considered as well as the form or shade of the flower.
