We 'are informed that The Society for the Protection of Wild Flowers and Plants has been formed with the object of preventing the despoiling of the countryside, and to save from extinction wild flowers and ferns. The systematic plun- dering of trees will also be dealt with. The Society will endeavour to secure legislation to render illegal the sale of wild plants and to schedule the rarer species against removal. Headquarters are to be established in London, and particulars of the Society may be obtained from the Hon. Secretary, Mr. C. Harding, 6 Astley Street, Maidstone.
