difficulty in describing th« relative ralue of the plants,-' as- for example,
plants 4 to 5 or 6 feet, may be grown up slender and-ffppiear tO'be cSieap,
when at the same time the reverse is the case, and oftentimes greatly in-
ferior in quality to plants at the same charge and but 2 to 3 feet high. —
We therefore beg to hint that intending purchasers would find it greatly to
their advantage in making a personal visit of inspection, and which may be
readily done by Waterloo, Wokingham, and Reading Railway to the Sun-
ningdale Station.

Our display of Rhododendrons the past Spring in the Garden of the
Royal Botanic Society, Regent's Park, London, was of unusual brilliancy,
and admitted by thousands of visitors to have been the most imposing and
gorgeous Exhibition ever witnessed, and many were the expressions of
regret at the inability of procuring a soil suitable for their growth^an
erroneous opinion prevailing that they cannot be grown without a rich
Peaty soil. We are prepared to ihow from our own personal experience

tliat they can be grown in every locality in the greatest state of luxuriance.
That some districts are more fayoured than others as respects the composi-
tion of soil ve do not for a moment dispute, and it is perfectly true that a
rich peat or bog soil as it is indifferently called is the most preferable for
the whole of tip tribe^ but there are numberless instances of their thriving
in a light fertile loam of which the miich prized peat forms but a very in-
ngniftcent part We know of no estate or locality but would furnish an
inexhaustible supply of suitable materials in the absence of peat ; for in-
gtanoe, as an example, take a suiBcient quantity of the top spit or surface
of any plantation, wood, or grass land, (the more it is impregnated with
TegetaUe partirieg the better,} it is firequeBtly Ibund good on waste or un-
eadLoM hkda and margiTiw of woods, &c.; the thickness of the spit will of
comrse depend upon the composition of the soil, the more turfy the better
for the growth of plants ; it should then have an admixture of leaf mould,
a small portion of white or other sand, with well rotted stable manure —
the proportum of the latter being as one barrowful to six of the former
ingredientSE.

In the formation of clumps or beds the depth of soil suitable for their
growth should be about 18 inches, and in planting^ the beds should be kept
below rather than abore the suzrounding sur&ce, thus avoiding the excessive
draughts plants in elevated positions are subject to. There is but one other
remark, we think necessary to be observed* which is, tiiat as soon as the
flowers are no longer ornamental they should be pindied off— their itemoval
greatly fenilitates fresk growth and induces a greater profosioii of bads for
the ensuing season.

We beg to say that intending purchasers of American Plants that
cannot make it oonv^ent to inspect our stock, would do weU in intmsting

RHODODENDRONS.

HAEBY SCARLET, CRIMSON, ROSE, AND
OTHER VARIETIES.



Before attempting to particuhiue any individaal kind we may be per-
ihitted to remark that there are hundreds of crimson varieties of Rhododen-
drons called hardy, but which in reality are yery tender, as from a ten-
dency to bloom early they ore nearly all (or niae seasons out of ten) cot
dff or rendered unsightly by Spring frosts.

We haye great pleasure in submitting the annexed list which contains
fhe newest and the yery best varieties in cnltivationy are fine growers, most'
abundant bloomers, and the whole of ihem perfectly hardy, and generally
in perfeotioii abont the. first and seoefod week in the month of June. At
the Rzhibition of Ehododendrona in the Boyal Botanic Gardens, Regent* s
^ark, our threo new varietiea— /o^ W*i»9r^ Ufi, John Watertry and Za^
SlMor Cb<A«ar<— elicited adminttion 6om dl who salt them, and wib confi-
dently recommend them as being Ux anpezior to every other kind.
