Excerpt from Continuous Bloom in America: Where, When, What, to Plant; With Other Gardening Suggestions Fourth. Calceolaria was suggested rather hastily and without first trying it in home soil. The author must mention the disappointing venture with this beautiful golden ower, which lends such a brilliant efi'ect to the English June gardens. An attempt to grow it at home from English seed produced plants of many leaves, but with insignificant owers. Pos sibly in different soil and moister climate, results might be otherwise. While my first book was devised entirely to meet the amateur's long-felt want for the ABC of garden ing, with fortnightly advice for the untrained gardener, this second book will, I hope, supply the more ex perienced gardener with a comprehensive scheme for continuous bloom, as well as abbreviated plans in a late chapter for those who would specialize in spring and autumn displays. In addition there are some other garden suggestions which may, I trust, be help ful to those who have t as yet gone deeply into this interesting subject.
