In ordering these Rose-trees, which will cost, many of them being new, about 7, 10s.,* I advise the amateur to ask for low Standards. The height which I prefer is about 2 feet from the ground to the budded Rose, because these lesser trees escape the fury of the wind, requiring no stakes to support them after their first year; because they are more conveniently manipulated than either dwarfs or giants; and because their complete beauty presents itself pleasantly to our eyes, without bringing us down on our knees, or requiring us to stand a-tiptoe. They should be planted in November, just deep enough to have a firm hold upon the soil; and the surface round them should be covered with a stratum of manure, both to protect and enrich the roots. Should they be sent from the nurseries with any shoots of great length, or with taproots, shorten the former, or secure them to a stake, and remove the latter altogether. Affix your permanent tallies (I use smooth slips of deal, smeared with white paint, written upon with a black-lead pencil, and secured with thin wire to the trees), because the labels of the nurseryman, even when on parchment, become illegible from rain and snow.

"And next summer," exclaims the ardent disciple, "we shall have Roses as large as finger-glasses; we shall win the Cup; we shall make the Marquess's gardener, that bumptious Mr Peacock at the Castle, for ever to fold his tail." It troubles me to repress this charming enthusiasm, to demolish a superstructure as gay, but, alas! as baseless, as those card-houses which the child builds, with the kings, queens, and knaves of the pack, upon the polished mahogany of his sire. No, my dear amateur, not next summer, nor in any summer, with those Roses only which will grow upon the trees just commended to you, are you to whip creation, and make the family plate-chest groan. If you ■propose to grow Roses for exhibition - that is to grow them to their full perfection - you must grow them on your own stocks from buds. The Rose-trees, which we will suppose you have just planted, are to supply these buds, and you have still to provide, if you will follow my directions, some 500 stocks, to receive those buds in July. These stocks, like the Rose-trees, should be planted in November; but what are these stocks to be?

aesop told the gardener of his master, Xanthus, that "the earth was a stepmother to those plants which were incorporated into her soil, but a mother to those which are her own free production; "and wherever the Dog-Rose flourishes in our hedgerows - now delighting our eyes with its flowers, and now scratching them out with its thorns, should we follow the partridge or the fox too wildly - there the Brier is the stock for the Rose. I know that, despite the dictum of aesop, our soil has been no injusta noverca to that foreign Rose, which took the name of Manetti from him who raised it from seed, and which was sent to Mr Rivers, more than thirty years since, by Signor Crivelli, from Como. I know that the Italian refugee is acclimatised, and that in hundreds of our gardens he is a welcome and honoured guest. I know that the Manetti will grow luxuriantly where the Brier will not grow at all; that in a toward season it will produce some varieties of the Rose in perfection; that in many cases it causes a larger quantity of wood and bloom; and that it seems to be more enduring than the Brier, because the Brier being used as a standard, is more exposed to hardships, and because the Rose being budded beneath the soil on the Manetti, establishes itself in most cases upon roots of its own.
