At the November meeting of the Germantown Horticultural Society, some remarkably fine varieties of Chrysanthemums were exhibited by Mr. Walter Coles, gardener to J. I. Blair, Esq , of Belvidere, New Jersey. They showed that the improvement of this pretty fall flower has not yet been finished. These had the petals all of one uniform breadth, and all curved inwards regularly. The flowers attracted much attention Mr. Coles is one of that class of gardeners whose intelligence and genuine love of his profession makes gardening so attractive to so many.
