The Royal General Union for the cultivation of flower roots at Haarlem has held an extraordinary general meeting on June 20th, which was attended by a large number of its members, among whom the principal growers of bulbs and the principal members of the bulb trade. At this meeting the fact was considered that the unusual cold weather of this spring has caused all growing crops to be very backward; this unusual circumstance was discussed and led to the resolution that in consequence of this extraordinary season the flower roots and more particularly the Hyacinths most probably will not come to full maturity at the usual time, and therefore their exportations may be at a somewhat later period than usual.
