Seite 318 - ... has been steeped, or a small piece of camphor dissolved. The vase should be set upon a plate or dish, and covered with a bell-glass, around the edges of which, when it comes in contact with the plate, a little water should be poured to exclude the air.
Seite 197 - This forms a very pretty border flower during the Summer months, thriving in a mixture of sandy peat and loam, and is readily increased both by seeds and cuttings. A supply of the latter should be put in, in the Autumn, and kept in the greenhouse, or in the propagating pit, until the middle of May, when they are to be planted out in the open border. Its blossoms are very elegant, expanding only in the evening, or in cloudy weather, and they are then highly fragrant.
Seite 319 - Select from your rose trees such buds as are just ready to blow : tie a piece of fine thread round the stalk of each ; do not handle the bud, or the stalk ; cut it from the tree with the stalk two or three inches in length ; melt sealing-wax, and quickly apply it to the end of the stalk; the wax should...
Seite 160 - It is extremely free of growth, making shoots 10 or 12ft. long in a year; and therefore is particularly well adapted to climbing over old pales, or to covering any other place in which a wildness of appearance is desirable. The blossoms grow in bunches, are of the size of the sweet-scented Chinese rose, and fully as fragrant...
Seite 185 - Although a perennial, it may also be treated as an annual; for seedlings flower early enough the very first year to ripen their seeds. It will grow in any common garden soil, and seems to require no care in its cultivation. A bed of it thickly planted is very pretty.
Seite 163 - It should, therefore, either be sown in the autumn, so as to flower earlv, or in June, in order that it may be ready for blossoming in September. Any kind of soil seems to suit it, but it is not improbable that a shaded American border may be best. It is a native of California, whence it was sent by Mr. DOUGLAS.
Seite 184 - Bot. reg. 1598 C. specidsa, on a hot dry bank or bed, when the sun is shining full upon it, with all its large rich crimson blossoms fully expanded, and reposing upon the soft velvety bed formed by its succulent leaves, is a most beautiful object. It is a hardy annual, propagated readily by seeds, which it bears in great abundance. It loves dry and exposed situations, and flourishes most in scorching weather; but it should be grown in tolerably rich soil ; or, if in very poor soil, it should be sown...
Seite 158 - Rose ; because about seven flowers open at the same time, and each varying from the other, from a pale rose colour to a deep crimson.
Seite 190 - The plant is only biennial, but assumes an arborescent habit, and, if kept in the Conservatory, will continue to flourish for several years. It is increased by seeds, but the variety is not permanent.
Seite 204 - Itideœ a greenhouse is necessary, all that they require is protection from frost, and this can be best done by a frame, which may be removed entirely in fine weather. A warm sunny border should be selected for their culture, and the earth removed to the depth of a foot or 18 inches, and replaced by a mixture of vegetable mould and river sand. The bulbs should be taken up in the Autumn, and replanted about the middle of January, the larger ones being carefully selected from the rest. The earth will...
