This was a charming spring show, perhaps one of the prettiest and most interesting seen for years, those things commanding the greatest amount of interest being found, as is often the case, in the miscellaneous class. A charming bank of Cyclamens, of considerable extent, showed off to the best advantage this beautiful flower. Mr C. Turner was first with six splendid specimens, combining size and freedom of bloom with good variation and the best quality. The best collection was staged by Mr Edmonds of Hayes; the next best by Mr Stevens, Ealing. Mr James was again first with six Cinerarias, with larger and better-developed plants than those shown at the Regent's Park. On this occasion his group comprised Mrs Hardman (James), broadly edged with violet purple; William Reeves (James), margined with rosy crimson on a white ground; and others identical with those previously noticed. Prizes were offered for six Coleus, but, singular to state, none put in appearance; also for six Amaryllis. Mr Baxter, gardener to C. Keiser, Esq. of Broxbourne, staged one group of the latter that had been much injured by the frosts during their journey to the show.

Space will not permit of our doing justice to the magnificent collection of flowering Orchids staged on this occasion, made up of groups supplied by Mr Denning, gardener to Lord Londesborough, Messrs Veitch & Sons, and B. S. Williams. They were in themselves an exhibition, and that of no mean order. Messrs Veitch & Sons and H. Lane & Sons had groups of forced Roses in pots, the former having plants of superb quality, from the delicate flowers of Tea-scented Devoniensis to the rich deep colouring of H. P. Horace Vernet. A group of standard Roses in pots was also staged by Messrs H. Lane & Son.
