Commencing with rooted cuttings early in spring, they should be potted into pots 3 inches in diameter, then plunged in bottom-heat of 65°, with a few degrees higher atmospheric temperature, avoiding a too close or moist air. The usual means must be afforded to maintain healthy and vigorous growth, by potting when the wants of the roots demand extra room, and pinching to keep the form symmetrical and well furnished. At the same time, the plants should occupy the most airy and sunny aspect of the house, as near the glass as practicable.

"When the plants are large enough to suit the tastes of the cultivator, have them removed from the forcing-house to another where a drier air with more light prevails, at the same time sufficiently warm to harden the young shoots into ripeness, so that the plants may furnish flowers in autumn. "When winter approaches, water must be given sparingly, and the plants placed in warm, dry, sunny quarters, and otherwise managed as recommended for climbers while winter lasts.

Early in February prune back the last season's wood half-way, and partially shake the soil from the roots, supplying fresh soil and clean pots. Drain these pots properly, and use the same compost as that recommended for the climbers. Pot firmly, and after staking the growths neatly out and watering abundantly, so as to reach the lowest part of the soil, place the plants in a newly-started vinery to make fresh wood; and when this has been accomplished, return them to a greenhouse, where flowers will soon begin to form.
