pack the soil and injure the foliage.
To prevent your window plants from
blooming only on the street side, turn
them occasionally, and you will have
the blooms in the room as well. Do
not give foliage plants as much light
as for flowering plants: keep the ferns
in a shady corner; a north window is
a good place.
Use as dry material only well rotted
manure. To prepare liquid manure to
be applied only after the ordinary wa
tering has been done, take an ordinary
barrel -containing one half bushel of
fresh cow dung, and if extra strength
be required add a couple of quarts of
fresh hen manure, and cover with wa
ter. After it has fermented thorough
ly the coarse material will all settle to
the bottom and you may fill the barrel
with water and the solution is ready
to be applied to your, plants. An ap
plication every two weeks is generally
all that is required for most plants.
For this process sand is generally
used or very light soil a9 most favor
