IN PIT AND FRAME. Provide plenty of coverings against severe frost. Protect auriculas from frost and rain, giving plenty of air when it is not actually freezing. Remove decayed leaves, and be very •careful not to over-water the plants. Shift calceolarias if necessary, fumigating them now and then as a preventive of green-fly. Shrubby and half-hardy kinds only need protection dur- ing frost, abundance of air being given at other times. Give carnations and pieotees free ven- tilation excepting during frost. Water only when the plants are really dry. it is import- ant to remove decaying leaves. Examine dahlia tubers, and separate decayed from sound ones. Cut away decayed parts entirely, being careful to dry each cut surface as soon as possible. Prune resting fuchsias, repotting them in rich, sandy soil, and afterwards start- ing them into growth in gentlo heat. Continue removing hvicinths from under ashes, exposing them gradually to the full light. Those intend- ed for late flowering. should be kept as cool as possible. E.
