At the same time Mr Pilcher produced some fine examples of this showy autumn-flowering plant. Some were in 24-pots, others in 12-sized pots. The Nerine requires a winter treatment similar to the Vallota, but they are placed out of doors at the end of May, under a south wall, and there allowed to get thoroughly dry and lose every leaf. One specimen in a pot about 12 inches across had not been shifted for 6 years; it was a mass of bulbs, many of which were blooming freely. The variety shown by Mr Pilcher was known as N. Fothergillii major.
