We notice that throughout all the Western States numerous Horticultural Societies are being formed, while the attendance and discussions at the meetings of the older associations are such as to exhibit a widespread and. increasing interest in the knowledge of fruit and floriculture. We have occasionally glanced at important remarks made at these meetings, and hereafter propose to give more or less of the doings of each association, provided the secretaries will favor us with early copies of their transactions from meeting to meeting.

To produce an elegant effect in the flower garden in October and November, sow now seeds of the double white wallflower leaved stock. As soon as the plants are large enough to be transplanted, put each one separately into a seven-inch pot, and plunge the pots to the rims in any out-of-the-way place. They will need no care until September, when they will commence to bloom. Reject those with single flowers as soon as they are discovered. If the seed is good, nearly all the plants will prove double. Early frosts, which destroy many other bedding plants, do not have the slightest effect upon this stock. In October, they may be turned out into any of the beds where the plants have been killed, and their masses of double white flowers will attract attention f om every one. In our own garden we had a fine show until the 10th of December, last year, long after every other bedding plant was destroyed. This stock grows to the height of but nine inches, and the same in diameter across the plant.
