[ocr errors]

Camellias will now begin to make their new growth ; keep them well watered, syringing the foliage twice a week ; pick off all decayed flowers ; and prune off dead wood, or crooked branches ; the Camellia bears the knife well, and its freer use would prevent the quantity of unsightly plants, which abound in every collection. Water onee a fortnight with weak guano. Inarching may now be performed.

Pelargoniums will now be coming forward in fine condition, if our remarks have been followed. If there are any plants which have not been potted, now is the time to do it ; and if any have not been properly trained, they should not be neglected any longer : keep down the green fly, and occasionally syringe the foliage.

Cinerarias should now be shifted into larger pots.

Gesnera zebrina should now be placed in a hot-bed, to give the little corms a rapid start.

border.

TO READERS AND CORRESPONDENTS.

We are gratified in presenting our readers with another most valuable number. The articles are all so good that it would be invidious to name any particular one. Having now disposed of our Reviews, we shall bring up oar arrears of Miscellaneous Intelligence in our next number, the List of PREMIUMS of the Massachusetts Horticultural Society having excluded it from the present one.

Saxton & Miles are no longer our agents in New York,

James Hogg, Seedsman, Broadway, will act as our Agent in New York.
