The different varieties, as they go out of bloom, should have their flower-stalks removed, and a top-dressing of decayed stable-dung given them, and then be placed in a shady situation. If the weather is bright and sultry, this will prepare them for the autumn flowering, taking care to keep down the green-fly. Succession plants should be placed in a glass - covered house, with abundance of air on all sides, and with arrangements for shading. It does not answer to place Roses in pots under canvass, as with Tulips, etc, as they soon fade in flower and foliage.
