0 THE GREENHOUSE. Frequent changes of posit 0.1 will be bene- ficial to all plants in pots during the short, dark days we re now having. Do not over- wa'eI' zonal pelargoniums. Remember that a buoyant atmosphere is necessary to keep flowers from damping. It is quite possible to over-dose chrysanthemum* with stimu- lants. The fat, highly-fed blcoms are more 1 kely to suffer from damp than when judg- ment has been used in the application of liquid mrnure. Climbers should be shor- tened back as much as possible, so as to lot plenty.of light. Mignonette in pots w- i IJ hardly l>e «ife now in ooid frames. A w- i IJ hardly I}f' t:.aff' now in ooid frames. A position near the glass in the greenhouse is t'e right pl'ce now. There is a deal of de- corative value in Chinese primulas when they are well grown and the drain is good. Tee is, however, a go d deal of rubbish sold in cinerarias, primulas and cyclamen. The best way when oice a go d strain of anything has been secured, is to save seeds at home. Late-flowering pi nt^i are the best for seed purposes. Remove soft unripe s- o:-ta from Marechal Nirl and other roses planted out under glass; this will let in air and light, and greatly assist in ripening the wood. The roots should now have ler-s water. Grapes in a greenhouse where much water is required had b t'er be cut with six inches or so of wood attached and placed in bottles cf water, on a properly constructed rack, so that the bunches can hang clear. Any room with a temperature of 45deg. to 50deg. will do. and the grapes will keep better under such conditions than if left in the house on the vine.
