This exhibition took place in St George's Hall on the 25th and 26th of November last, and was, by impartial and competent judges, considered the most splendid winter display of fruit and flowers ever seen. The Chrysanthemums, whether as regarded the size of the individual blooms or the magnificence of the specimens, were quite unique. Liverpool has made Chrysanthemum-growing a perfect specialty - so much so, that Mr Broome, the celebrated Chrysanthemum-grower of the Temple Gardens, London, pays an annual visit to Liverpool on the occasion of these Shows to look after his .laurels.

The exhibition of fruit was also of great excellence, and the whole arrangements reflected great credit on Mr Tyerman, the Curator of the Botanic Gardens, and Mr R. N. Kerr, seedsman, Basnett Street.

The judges were - Fruit: Mr Lees, gardener to the Earl of Haddington, and Mr Grey, gardener to the Earl of Zetland. Plants and Flowers: Mr Baines, Bow-den; Mr Hibberd, Stoke Newington; Mr Broome, of the Temple Gardens, London. The following are their awards: -
