It is not generally known that the common white lily may be grown to perfection in pots, and is well adapted for forcing. Its great decorative value, and its emblematic character, enhance its importance as a plant adapted for culture under glass, to supply its charming flowers at an earlier season than they customarily appear in the open garden. When grown for this purpose, the bulbs should be potted in August, in a compost consisting of about three parts mellow turfy loam, and one part each of rotten hot-bed manure and sharp sand. Frame culture should sufhce until the end of l^'ebruary, when the plants may be removed into a light airy greenhouse, and should never have a temperature higher than the average of greenhouse plants. This, with full exposm-e to light, and abundant ventilation, will ensure an early and a vigorous bloom..
