In the early spring months there is nothing more beautiful than a sheet of the snowy, graceful blossoms of the Snow- drop. Beds and effects of surpassing beauty may be arranged with Snowdrops in the centre, edged with bright blue Scilla Sibirica, or Chionodoxa Lucila, or by intermingling them. When practic- able, such plantings of the snowdrops should be permanent. The Snowdrop and the Crocus, when planted in alternate circles, are very effective, and follow each other so closely that no gap is left in the succession. In beds of Tulips and Hya- cinths, Snowdrops are very effective be- tween the lines; they flower while these bulbs are just moving the surface, and when the flowers are over there remains an elegant groundwork of green foliage. Used as a permanent edging, and in masses on the edges of lawns, nestling in the grass, they look charming. Single Snowdrops. 15c. per doz.; Sl.OO per 100; S8.00 per 1000. Double Snowdrops. 3 for 10c.; 30c. per doz.; $2.00 per 100. ELWES' GIANT SNOWDROP One of the finest of the genus, at least three times the size of the ordinary single Snowdrop, flowers slightly marked with green spots, fine for cutting (See cut.) 20c. perdoz.;S1.25per 100; SIO.OO per 1000 SCILLAS, WOOD HYACINTHS AND BLUE BELLS. Sibirica. (Amaena or Praecox.) One of our most beautiful hardy spring bulbs, producing in profusion masses of exquisite rich blue flowers almost before the snow has disappeared. If grown in masses, their flowers fairly carpet the ground; and if grown with Snowdrops and Crocus, for contrast, the effect is magnificent. They should be largely planted as undergrowth in Hyacinth beds, etc. Grown in pots they may be had in bloom from Christmas until April. (See cut.) 2 for 5c., 20c. per doz., S1.25 per 100 810.00 per 1000. Bifolia. Most beautiful bright bl
