Take a pint of water and add an eighteenth part of sulphuric acid, and dip the newly cut flowers into it singly, afterwards hanging them up to dry in an airy, shady place, when they will assume a beautiful red color. Zinnias, Pansies, Pelargoniums, Fuchsias, etc, may be dipped in a very thin gum and afterwards dried, care being taken that the leaves retain their natural position. Where the leaves happen to stick together they may easily be parted with a penknife.- Gardener's Chronicle.
