Water them over-head, once or twice, after • re-potting; but never allow heavy rain
to have access to the place they are in. At this stage of their growth be careful to
ascertain that the plants are dry before watering. More plants die at this season
from inattention in this respect than from any other cause. Watch for green-fly ; it

those that are rooted should be potted off into small sixties, and placed in a close

leaf shape and rough texture that provide good contrast. There are lots of species
and cultivars to choose from, so if geraniums appeal to you, just start trying them.

their availability. No matter how desirable or striking a species may be, I won't
recommend it if it cannot be found and used with little trouble. Although everyone
knows that direct work with plants or gardening is fundamentally good for people,
