SYEINGE. This is a most useful
implement for impelling water over
plants in pots, wall-trees, &c. Read's
syringes are excellent. When the
object is merely to refresh the plants,
the operator should stand at some
distance from the plants, so that the
water may spread and fall upon them
like a shower. But if aphides have to
be destroyed, he may be closer to the
plants, and drive forth the water with
greater force. The accompanying
sketch represents the water passing
through many minute holes; but the
syringe is sold with spare nozzles, so
as to deliver the water in a greater
body ; and with elbows, so that the
opposite sides of plants in greenhouses
may be syringed without moving them.

Soil. Poor dry soil is essential to
produce it in perfection, and hardy.
Propagated by parting the roots. To
have green Tarragon during the winter
and spring, strong-rooted plants must
be planted, small portions at a time,
once or twice a month, from the close
of October to the end of January. For
the main crop, it may be planted any
time from the end of February until
the conclusion of May. .
Plant ten inches apart; and if dry
weather, water must be given regularly
every evening until they are rooted.
They soon establish themselves, and
may be gathered from the same year.
As they run up, the stems should be
cut down, which causes them to shoot
At the end of autumn, if some es-
tablished plants are set beneath a south
fence, they will often afford leaves
throughout the winter, or, at all events,
come early in the spring. Some of the
leaves should be gathered in the
summer, and dried for winter's use.
