Seite 54 - But who can paint Like Nature? Can imagination boast, Amid its gay creation, hues like hers ? Or can it mix them with that matchless skill, And lose them in each other, as appears In every bud that blows...
Seite 160 - ... the manure, whatever it be, should be thoroughly incorporated with loam and light vegetable mould, and be in a state of entire decay. One of the latest writers on the subject recommends the following compost • — ' One barrow of rich yellow loam, or fresh-dug earth from some meadow, or pasture, or common, with the turf well rotten ; one barrow of leaf mould ; one barrow of well-decomposed horse or frame dung ; one barrow of cowdung, two years old at least; and one peck of river-sand, not sea-sana.
Seite 188 - The lower or outer circle of petals, commonly called the guard leaves, should be particularly substantial ; they should rise perpendicularly about half an inch above the calyx, and then turn off gracefully in a horizontal direction, supporting the interior petals ; which should decrease gradually in size, as they approach the centre, which should be well filled with them.
Seite 77 - Small Yellow, Hort. Trans, v. 6. p. 327. Taller and weaker than the last, early and small-flowered, with small and blunt pinnatedly-lobate leaves. Perhaps it may be a distinct species, from its small leaves and flowers. 7. Small Pale Yellow; Small Windsor Yellow, Hort. Trans, v. 5. p. 415.
Seite 240 - Wallich that orchideous epiphytes grow in company with ferns ; and the thicker the forest, the more stately the trees, the richer and blacker the natural soil, the more profuse the Orchideae and ferns upon them. There they flourish by the sides of dripping springs, in deep shady recesses, in inconceivable quantity, and with an astonishing degree of luxuriance.
Seite 79 - Flame Yellow, Hort. Trans, v. 4. tab. 14. p. 349. and v. 5 p. 421. The magnificent flowers of this tall plant appear rather late, and often measure above five inches in expansion ; and make, perhaps, if not a more neat, at least a more showy appearance than any other of the group, being double, and composed of innumerable chiefly quilled incurving petals, hanging more or less downwards, and when at their best resembling a flamecoloured tassel.
Seite 127 - ... have contained. When the pit is filled up again with the frozen lumps of earth, it should remain till the whole mass has thawed, and subsided to its pristine bulk, or nearly so ; its surface should then be made perfectly smooth and even, and the seed sown upon it with the utmost regularity, in such...
Seite 92 - A pretty phenomenon is exhibited by the leaves when thrown into water : after lying a short time, they will be found to start and jump as if they were alive, while at the instant of each start a jet of oily matter is discharged into the water. This circumstance appears to be owing to some peculiar irritability of the parenchyma of the leaves, which, when acted upon by water, causes the...
Seite 80 - ... second week in January. It acquires the name of Old from being the first China chrysanthemum that came to England in modern times, and bloomed at Mr. Colvill's nursery, in Nov. 1795, but was said to be at Kew in 1790. The great horticulturist Miller certainly had one, or more likely two, of these Chinese, or Indian, chrysanthemums, in cultivation at Chelsea long before ; but it is not yet quite satisfactorily explained what sorts they were. See Hort. Trans, v. 4. tab. 12. p. 326. and following....
Seite 240 - ... they receive by their roots, yet it is obviously requisite that they should be so situated as to be within reach of an abundant supply, not only at the time when they are growing, but also at all other times to a certain extent. Hence we...
