ROSES DURING JANUARY.

ROSES DURING JANUARY. Strong liquid manure may be put on rose beds during light frosts, as it then sinks far and rapidly into the ground. Fine manure may be prepared by placing a bushel of old cow manure, that has been carefully preserved and not washed by rain, in a barrel of water. After standing for two or three days, and being occasionally stirred, the liquid may be diluted with four times its volume of water. After strong winds it is necessary to examine the protective covering of tea roses; and to see that standard trees have not broken away from their stakes. Planting should be completed as weather permits. For cottage gardens, where an abundant and certain yield of flowers is desired without much trouble, the following are probably the best twelve kinds:—Abel Grand, Alfred Colomb, Dupuy Jamain, Edward Morren, John Hopper, Jules Margottin, La France, Madame Isaac Pereire, Mrs. John Laing, Paul Neyron, Thomas Mills, and Ulrich Brunner.
