I HORTICULTURE. PALMS AS DOMESTIC PLANTS.âSo popular have Palms become as domestic plants, and so admirably do they thrive in the dry air of living rooms and in ill-lighted corridors, that they are offered in large numbers in Covent Garden, and from thence they may be seen on the barrows of costermongers and on the heads of plant-hawkers in the streets of London, who eneleavour to earn an honest penny in distributing them over the homes of the metropolis. During the first week in J anuary the weather was so mild that Palms and the hardier Dracaenas could be conveyed in the open air without being sheltered and without receiving any injury. The Palms which are the most extensively grown for market are Latania borbonica and Seaforthia elegans, both of which are as ornamental when small as they are stately when of larger growth. Plants of these Palms in M and 6-inch pots are valuable for decorative purposes both in rooms and conservatories, in town and in country.âJournal of Horticulture.
