Abstract

THERE is a plant here with a very large bulb, Scilla maritima (?), whose flower I have not seen. I grew two of them in pots last year, but they failed. This plant is set by the peasants near the fig-trees with the idea that these latter will produce better fruit. Is this a mere superstition? or can the Scilla be connected in any way with caprification?
