The dwarf-growing Pyrethrum Tchihatchewii is likely to become invaluable for covering dry banks, spaces under trees, and other bare places where grass refuses to grow. It is also valuable for small forecourts, where the owner thereof has neither the inclination nor time for mowing the grass so often as is necessary to keep it neat and tidy. It is of very rapid growth, so that there is no danger of its being overgrown with weeds, although it will be necessary to diligently weed it until it has quite carpeted the earth, to preserve a neat appearance. It can be planted at any season of the year, but spring and summer are the most suitable periods. The large tufts should be divided, and the pieces dibbled in firmly at a distance of about 4 inches apart. Small plants can be planted intact at a distance of about 6 inches apart each way. I bought in two dozen plants last spring, and although they were small they were put out at a distance of about a foot apart. They now cover the entire space with a dense carpet of the richest green. If they were to be lifted and carefully divided, there would be sufficient to plant half an acre at least.

It is not necessary that the soil should undergo any special preparation before planting, beyond its being dug up and the surface reduced to a proper condition for the reception of the plants. I do not recommend lawns to be planted with it in preference to grass turf, but where grass refuses to grow, or where it is desired to do away with the bother of mowing small grass-plots, there is nothing to equal it. I believe it is not yet in the hands of the trade generally in this country, but any of the leading houses would undoubtedly readily procure it through their French correspondents. - The Gardeners' Magazine.
