Seite 234 - Dendrobium undulotum of Mr. Brown, a handsome species, originally discovered by Sir Joseph Banks at Bustard Bay, and which has been lately found on barren hills naturally clear of timber upon the banks of the Brisbane River at Moreton Bay, where the plant forms tufts on bare rocks exposed to the full heat of the sun, which during nine months of the year is very considerable on that part of the coast.
Seite 112 - No green-house or hot-house should be without carao-mile in a green or in a dried state ; either the stalks or flowers will answer. It is a singular fact, that if a plant is drooping and apparently dying, in nine cases out of ten it will recover, if you place a plant of camomile near it.
Seite 235 - Bot. reg. 1701 A fine species of O'rchis, native of woods and copses in Madeira; very much like the European O. latifolia, from which it differs in being larger in all its parts, &c. The specimen figured was supplied by Messrs. Young and Penny, nurserymen, Milford, near Godalming, Surrey; in whose collection, so rich in Canary plants, the species has been some time cultivated ; and with whom it succeeds extremely well, either in well-drained pots, or a turf pit, in a soil composed...
Seite 122 - ... floral epicure is every thing. To be a day in the year without seeing a flower is a novelty to me, and I am persuaded much more might be done with my humble means than I have effected, had I sufficient leisure to attend to the retarding or forcing them. I cover every space in my sitting-rooms with these beautiful fairy things of creation, and take so much delight in the sight of them, that I cannot help recommending those of limited incomes, like myself, to follow my example and be their own...
Seite 101 - Yet long the inflicted pangs thou shalt not mourn, Sprung since thou art from Jove, and heavenly-born. Else, singed with lightning, hadst thou hence been thrown, Where chain'd on burning rocks the Titans groan.
Seite 122 - ... when our climate offers none. The trouble attending them is all my own, and is one of those employments which never appear laborious. Those who have better conveniences may proceed on a larger scale ; but I contrive to keep up a due succession, which to a floral epicure is every thing. To be a day in the year without seeing a flower is a novelty to me, and I am persuaded much more might be done with my humble means than I have effected, had I sufficient leisure to attend to the retarding or forcing...
Seite 122 - ... other plants of similar growth, are fitted for the saloon, but they please best in the library. They should be intermingled with the book-cases, and stands filled with them should be placed wherever practicable. They are a wonderful relief to the student. There is always about them a something that infuses a sensation of placid joy, cheering and refreshing. Perhaps they were first introduced at festivals, in consequence of their possessing this quality. A flower-garden is the scene of pleasurable...
Seite 121 - ... requires plenty of water. Those who have a green-house connected with their dwellings, have the convenience, by management, of changing their plants as the flowers decay ; those who have not, and yet have space to afford them light and occasionally air, may rear most of those kinds under their own roof, which may be applied for ornament in summer. Vases of plaster, modelled from the antique, may be stained any colour most agreeable to the fancy, and, fitted with tin cases to contain the earthen...
Seite 110 - Jupiter is almost more than the eye can bear, and his satellites appear as bright as Sirius, but with a clear and steady light ; and all the belts and spots upon the face of the planet are most distinctly defined. With a power of near 400, Saturn appears large and well defined, and is one of the most beautiful objects that can well be conceived.
