America, Washington, Woodland, Margarette, Pellenburg, perfectly hardy and profuse bloomers.

The Remontante or Hybrid Perpetual, are generally exceedingly hardy, many of them being first class bloomers although shy. Among the best of the well known older varieties, are the following: Victor Verdier, Maurice Bernardin, Count Cavon, Cardinal Patrojii, Gen. Washington, Madame Victo Verdier, Giant des Battailles, Madame Mason, Jules Margotten, Princess Mathilde, Leon Verges.

The Bourbon class is undoubtedly the best for small collections, as they are hardy, and, with few exceptions, are constant bloomers. The following are hard to excel: Hermosa, Omer Pasha, Souvenir, Malmaison, Imperatives, Eugenie, Countess de Brabant, Mme Bosanquet and George Peabody.

Little Red Romamte (Gilpin)

" Hardy and a great bearer when top-worked; not hardy root-grafted."

Lllium Auratum Rubrum Vltatum

If any one has bulbs of this variety, they will oblige by informing us.

All fruit-trees are liable under the best of cultivation to have more or less insects harbor on them. This month, as soon as the leaves have fallen, will be found a profitable season to paint or wash them, bodies and all, the main limbs and crotches, with some kind of alkali wash. We practice putting up a leach of wood-ashes, and using the lye therefrom; but a wash from commercial potash will perhaps be equally good. The mingling a little of flour of sulphur or common soot, so as to form a thin paint, is by some counted better than the clear lye.

Hollyhocks left in the open ground should have the old flower stems cut down, and a covering of three or four inches of manure spread over their crowns, the manure to be lightly forked under in spring.
