Flower Garden and Shrubberies. Cuttings should be carefully looked Over to see that nothing has been omitted, and that a sufficient quantity of everything is in a promising state for making nice plants before winter; it should be borne in mind that things which are not at all difficult to winter rooted after this season may be considerably thinned before spring, and also that they will not be sufficiently strong to fur- nish many cuttingsfor spring propagation; consequently, a larger quantity than would have been necessary had the cuttings been put in a month ago, should be pro- vided. But if there is a reserve stock of strong plants in pots, which is a safe practice where there is a large quantity of bedding stuff required, and proper convenience for growing them and propagating in spring, these will furnish a large quantity of cuttings Oext March, which, as has been formerly stated, will form equally good plants by turningout in time as cuttings put in now- In the case of such things as ageratums. heliotropes) and dwarf lobelias, it is useless wintering young stock, as these grow so freely in heat, and are so easily propagated from soft cuttings that a few good- sized old plants which require but little room or atten- tion ia winter will furnish a very large quantity of plants by bedding-out time. Attend to the potting of cuttings sufficiently rooted, and give every after attention to these in order to get them well established.
