Our lady readers will value the following little hint from a correspondent of the Gardener's Magazine: - With a comparatively small number of plants, I have been cutting blossoms nearly every week for the last twelve months (not less than two hundred in all), and from the appearance of the plants, as to buds and luxuriant foliage, I may expect a succession during the coming winter months, when other white flowers are so difficult to procure, especially for church decorations. I must add that I give the Calks very little rest, some of them none whatever. By this system of culture the old roots do not die, and the plants certainly produce much finer blooms.
