I offer to the lovers of standard Roses a little plan of my own; it has succeeded admirably. An artificial prop to standard Roses is unsightly, and is both exposed to decay in the run of time, and to disasters from the raging of the wintry blast In order to do . without this prop, plant three standard Roses, (the longer the stem, the better,) in an equilateral triangle. If on a slope, one leg must be longer than the other two. They may be from eight to fourteen inches apart Bring the stems together at the top, and bore a hole through each of them, a little below where they have been budded; then through these holes thread a copper wire, such as is used for soda-water bottles, and bring the heads of the three plants quite close together, making the ends of the wire fast This is all. You have here a group so firm and strong, that it can never break down, or ever require an artificial support. I made four groups last autumn. They are now in fine blow, and are much admired. - Charles Waterton, in London Gardeners' Chronicle.
