A Pretty Home Surrounded
By L. M. BENNINGTON.
If you want your bed of cannas or
border of caladiums to make a grand
showing from now to frost, give them
a frost-like covering of bonemeal ; then
stir the soil, water thoroughly and
mulch with lawn clippings. Do this
toward the end of tjiis month and be
sure to remove the fading flowers.
Copy nature by sowing seeds of
perennials as they ripen. Provide some
sort of shade for the seed bed. A
screen made of lath or one of un
bleached muslin will answer.
The robust-growing plants will need
some sort of support. Let the supports
be painted green or oiled to bring out
the grain of the wood and you will
find them more pleasing than rough
sticks and far more satisfactory. Drive
the stakes fast into the earth a little
lower than the plants, so that they are
The plants needing supports are such
hardy perennials as delphiniums,
giant foxglove and snapdragons. Do
not overlook giving stakes to the dah
lias, cosmos, hydrangeas and gladi
oli. To maintain continuous blooming
from now until frost, a few perennials
must be preserved. Make a habit of
cutting flowers freely and remove all
the fading blossoms and nature will re
ward you with a lavish hand.
After this month, allow the chrysan
themums to 'grow according to their
own will that is, stop pinching them
TROUBLE WITH ASTERS
By GODFRY FRY.
The maggot is a deadly enemy of
the aster. Look out for it and guard
against it. Work wood ashes into
the earth about the plants and remove
a little of the soil about the base of
each plant and scatter tobacco dust
liberally around them.
Wood ashes are one of the best rem
edies and a change of location of the
aster bed each year is another wise
The black beetle is another pest
that does deadly work with the aster
plants. This pest comes suddenly and
does ruinous work in a very little
while. When you see the first beetle

all over the plant, and repeat the ap
One half pound of any good soap,
ivory or other white soap, reduced to
a liquid by melting.
One teacupful of kerosene.
Let the soap with a little water come
to a boil. Add the kerosene. Stir the
mixture vigorously while cooling. Use
one part of this to ten parts of water.
Be sure the water and the emulsion
are united then use a spray.
Tulips increase by bulblets which
issue from the side of the larger
bulbs. Under certain conditions, too,
the larger bulbs split up into smaller
In a well-drained, sunny bed the
bulbs will live and increase from year
to year, but should be lifted, divided
and reset every third year, as the
clumps become too much crowded to
thrive and bloom.
In potted lilies, set the bulbs two
inches or more beneath the soil. The
larger the pot, the larger will be the
Auratum, Speciosum, Longiform and
Brownii are all suitable for pot cul
ture. After potting, water and set in a
dark closet or cellar, keeping the soil
moist until roots form and the tops
start, when the roots may be .brought
to a cool window, say in January or
February, if early started.
Take some strong clumps of iris,
about two or three years old and not
too large. Leave the earth on them
and take them up just before the
ground freezes and put them in large
pots in a cool cellar. If they do freeze
it will not hurt them, but see that the
frost conies out gradually.
Bring them up to the light and put
the? jr a southern exposure and they
will flower during February and
March. If white ones are planted
beautiful Easter flowers will be pro
vided. With care iris will bloom al
most half the year. The flowers grown
in the house are more delicate and
beautiful than if grown out of doors.
Other winter flowers are expensive,
but these can be secured at little cost,
and when once started one can get
them from one's own garden.
Experiment with Irises this fall ; you
will get pleasure and profit from it.
