Seite 72 - Floriculture.—All lovers of flowers must remember that one blossom allowed to mature or "go to seed," injures the plant more than a dozen new buds. Cut your flowers then, all of them, before they begin to fade. Adorn your rooms with them, put them on your tables; send bouquets to your friends who have no flowers, or exchange favors with those who have.
Seite 72 - You will surely find that the more you cut off the more you will have. All roses after they have ceased to bloom should be cut back, that the strength of the root may go to forming new roots for next year. On bushes not a seed should be allowed to mature.
Seite 67 - UNGER. Vienna, 1843. pp. 494, 8vo. — In the production of this admirable text-book, one of the most accomplished systematic botanists of the age has been joined by his friend, a distinguished physiologist. The work is divided into two parts ; the first treating of the nature of plants as individuals ; the second, of plants viewed as composing a systematic unity, a vegetable kingdom. The first part comprises, 1st, Histology, or an account of the elementary organs of plants ; 2d, Organology, corresponding...

Seite 63 - It also stands rough and stormy weather much better than any of our more cherished flower garden favorites, and blooms well towards the latter end of the year. Its propagation and cultivation are very easy. Cuttings put in the first week in March, in a little bottom heat, will strike freely. When struck they should be potted off singly, and kept in a frame until April, when they should be hardened off, and bedded out the latter end of May, where it will flower beautifully until it is destroyed by...
Seite 86 - The young shoots from the base have opposite, long-stalked, fleshy, glaucous leaves oblong-ovate in form, with coarse, distinct, and remarkably prominent marginal teeth ; while the leaves on the flowering stems are short and broadly ovate, completely connate, with the edge turned up so as to form a basin around the stalk.
Seite 67 - The color is a deep bronzy green, breaking out in the young growth into bright rosy carmine, the petiole and base of the leaves margined with the same color. The brighter coloring appears sometimes in stripes, and sometimes occupies the whole surface ; while the recurved character of the...
Seite 78 - AMONG hardy perennials there are few more gorgeously beautiful than the perennial Delphiniums. We lately saw some beds of these in Mr. Parker's nursery at Tooting, and also at Messrs. Henderson's, St. John's Wood, and their beauty was really dazzling.
Seite 86 - ... while the upper lip is projected forwards, and merely revolute at the edge. The bearded sterile filament is very conspicuous at the mouth of the tube. The plant is very ornamental in character, as well as perfectly distinct, and will be welcomed...
