This Society is to hold a grand international fruit and flower show in Edinburgh on the 8th and 9th of next September, when 500 will be offered in prizes; and there is reason to expect that, as a display of fine fruit, it will excel any exhibition that has preceded it, as nearly all the leading growers in England and Scotland will be exhibitors.

We also observe that Dundee is to have a fine exhibition on the 3d and 4th of the same month.

Royal Caledonian Horticultural Society #1

The Schedule of Prizes for the Great International Fruit and Flower Show of this Society, to be held in Edinburgh on the 8th and 9th of September of this year, is now before us. The leading prizes are 10, 7, 5, and 3, for the best collection of eight sorts of Grapes. Half these sums for four sorts. For twenty sorts of fruit, 15, 10, 7, and 5. For sixteen sorts, 10, 7, 3, and 1, 10s. Besides these, prizes are offered for nearly all other sorts of fruit, including Grapes of all descriptions.

For eight stove and greenhouse plants, 10, 7, and 5 guineas are offered. For the three finest Orchids in bloom, 5, 3, and 1. Prizes of a similar character are offered for all the usual autumn flowers, whether these be cut spikes or pot plants.

Judging from the display produced by a similar schedule in 1865, we expect this to be the finest display of fruit ever brought together in one place. The sum total of the prizes offered is but little short of 500, more than half of which is offered for fruit. We are very pleased to learn that many of the great English fruit-growers mean to compete on the occasion.
