As it is an established fact that a
thorough thinning out of fruit On a
tree causes that remaining to grow
to greater perfeetion, Wo the same pro
coss will apply to plants producing
flowers. When the rose buds are be
ginning to fk im, go over the bushbs
and remove fully one-half, leaving
only the largest and best ; cut off the
bloom as fast as it fades, and you will
have larger and finer roses, and the
season of bloom be prolonged.

p)lainted out when the weather gets
settled, will begin to bloom in a few
