Pruning and staking all kinds of trees should now be attended to. A little attention to this will add greatly to their form and appearance.
Grafted trees should be looked after, and the clay and matling removed, if the ties are girdling the stems.
Thinning the fruit is an important object, when young trees have set too large a quantity.
FLOWER DEPARTMENT. Camellias should now be removed from the greenhouse or conservatory, into a half shady situation, and be properly arranged and placed upon boards, so that the worms cannot enter the pots. See that they are regularly syringed.
Pelargoniums will be past their beauty the latter part of the month, when they should be removed to the open air, and their branches headed in and cuttings put in, if a young stock is wanted.
Ericas should be removed to frames facing the north, or plunged out into the open ground in a half shady situation.
Diosmas, epacrises, fc. may receive the same treatment as the ericas.
Oxalises, Spararis, Ixias, c., done blooming, should be placed in a dry place, and the pots placed on their sides.
Japan Lilies will begin to flower this month ; let them be neatly staked up, and be liberally watered, and occasionally syringed.
Fuchsius will now be in full power, and should be occasionally watered with a weak solution of guano.
Roses wanted for flowering in beds or clumps, should be turned out immediately. Those wanted for blooming in the autumn should be plunged in the ground in a sheltered place, and the soil mulched with litter. Whore a young stock is wanted, they may now be propagated from cuttings.
Achimenes and Gloxinias will now be great ornaments of the greenhouse, and a good stock should always be on hand for this purpose. Repot such as require it, and bring on a fresh lot for late blooming.
Cyclamens may now be turned out into the open ground, selecting a half shady place.
Næpolilan violets may now be increased, by dividing the roots and making new plantations.
Hyacinths and tulips may be taken up the latter part of the month.
Azaleas, removed from the house, should be placed in a half shady aspect, and plunged in tan or the open ground.
Daphnes may still be propagated from cuttings.
Ipoma'a Learii should now be turned out into the open border, and trained up to stakes at least eight feet high. It will form a complete pyramid of bloom in August.
Heliotropes may be propagated for a stock for winter flowering.
Greenhouse plants of all kinds may now be removed to the open air; and a great number of kinds do much better if they are plunged out into the border, especially Abutilons, Alloysias, Euphorbias, Salvias, and scarlet Geraniums.
TO READERS AND CORRESPONDENTS.
We have found the opportunity to present another article on the pear, including a description of the “Swan's Orange,” to which we invite the attention of our readers. Art. IV. by Mr. Kennedy, the second of his series, is worth the price of a volume. Our reviews are very interesiing, and should receive particular attention.
Our thanks are due to J. W. Sibley and J. H. Watts, for specimens of Red Canada and Northern Spy apples: to H. M. Brent and Thomas Allen, for trees of some new kinds of apples and pears: to Ellwanger & Barry, for scions of Swan's Orange pear: to Bissell & Hooker, for the same, with several kinds of apples : to Paul Wingate of Hallowell, for scions of apples; and to Dr. M. A. Ward, for various seeds.
James Hogg, Seedsman, Broadway, will act as our Agent in New York.
