My neighbor, Dr. Wolcott, grows lots of chrysanthemums, and this year for comparison's sake, grew some in pots and others planted out, but otherwise alongside of one another, and with equal care. The planted-out ones were lifted and potted early in September, and at flowering time as compared with those kept in pots all summer, were vastly superior, - larger, bushier, and more copiously budded. The evidence is strongly in favor of planting out.

Perennial fall flowering have of late been greatly improved, and ought to be found in every garden. I will mention a few which are yet in bloom late in November: Soeur Melanie, snow white, small, but beautiful; Gaillardia, gold orange; Mirabelle, dark red; Uranus rosa; Madame Chevreil, violet with white; General Pourcet, carmine red. All these are pompon sorts.

Blue Chrysanthemums

" B.," Natick, Mass., writes: "I notice in the Gardener's Monthly for August, a paragraph on the Blue Chrysanthemums, and I think you stated that some had been introduced into this country. Can you give me the address of any one having them so that I may get some? By so doing you will confer a favor."

[They have not been introduced yet or some one would advertise them in our columns. - Ed. G. M.]
