LABEL. Many are the forms and
substances employed in making labels
for plants. For general use they should
[ 530 ]
embrace among their good qualities
cheapness, durability, facility of being
written upon, and legibility. We have
before us specimens in zinc, porcelain,
and gutta percha, but most of them
are deficient in some one or more ; of
the desirable qualities. The least 'ob-
jectionable are those of zinc made by
Mr. S. Eooke, jun., 7, Whittall-street,
Birmingham, and may be had at prices
varying from 15s. to 40s. per 1000.
They are written upon with an ink of
which the recipe has been given in The
Cottage Gardener; but the letters are
indelible, so that when a label has
been written upon it cannot be em-
ployed for a second plant. This makes
us prefer a small piece of deal, planed
smooth, painted white, and written
upon with a lead pencil. If fastened
to the plant by a shred of thin lead
the label retains any desired position.
When required for a seed-bed, a small
stake is to be driven into the ground,
and from it the label to be suspended.

Varieties. There are the cos and
the cabbage. The first more grown in
summer than in winter ; the second at
all seasons, but more usually in winter,
on account of their superior hardihood.
The cicilias are of a nature interme-
diate the two. When young, the cab-
bage varieties are in general sweeter
than those of the cos at the same age ;
but of a full growth this is reversed ;
hence the latter are preferred for sa-
lads, and the former for soups. The
cabbage varieties succeed better in a
hotbed than the cos.
Vos Varieties. Brighton, Silver,
Black-seeded Green, Spotted or Leo-
pard, Early Egyptian, Green and Brown
Cilicia, Green, Lop, White or Versailles,
White Paris Cove, the finest summer
kind ; Green Paris Cove, rather hard-
ier ; Bath Cos, and Brown Cos.
Cabbage Varieties. Drumheaded,
Princes, Brown Dutch and Common
White Dutch, both good for winter ;
Tennis Ball or Button, good for win-
ter ; Large White, Hardy Green or
Capuchin, good for winter; Imperial
Grand Admirable, Prussian, Large
Roman, Malta, for summer; Neapoli-
tan, for summer.
Soil. Lettuces thrive best in a light,
very rich soil, with a dry substratum*
For th first and last crops of the year
a warm sheltered situation is required;
but for the Midsummer ones a border
that is shaded during mid-day.
Sowhitj. The first .sowing in a frame
on a warm border, or slender hotbed,
at the close of .lanuary, or early in
February ; at the close of this last
month a larger one in any open situa-
tion, and smaller repeated once every
tluee weeks, until the end of July, for
summer and autumn use, to be coii-
tinued at similar intervals until the
close of September, for winter and
early spring. Sow moderately thin,
each variety separate.
Prlckinif out. When the plants are
about a month old, or two inches in
height, thin them to three or four
inches apart; and prick out: those re-
moved at similar distances. Those from
the sowings in January and February
in frames, and thence until August, in
any open situation. Those of the Au-
gust sowing must be divided into two
portions ; the largest being selected
and planted in an open compartment
for late autumn use, and the smaller
on a warm border for winter and early
I'lant out finally, in rows a, foot apart
each way. At the time of every re-
moval, whether of pricking out or plant-
ing, water must be given moderately,
and until the plants are rooted. It
may be remarked, that transplanted
lettuces never attain so fine a growth
as those left where sown, nor become
NO soon fit for use : those which are
planted out at once to remain being
better in these respects than 1 host-
pricked out previous to final planting.
The varying in their time of becoming
fit for use, however, is of advantage, as
by these means a more perfect suc-
cession is obtained. Those which are
planted to withstand the winter, which
they easily do if sheltered with hoops
and matting during severe weather,
and continue in a fit state for use, are
best planted on ridges, as a protection
from excessive wet, from which they
always suffer. In every stage of growth
they must be kept well watered, and the
earth around them frequently stirred,
for the extirpation of slugs and snails.
IS'o vegetable is more benefited than
the lettuce by the- application occasion-
ally of liquid manure. To check the,
cos plants running to seed before the
heart is perfectly blanched, it is a good
practice, at the. time of tying them up,
to cut out the centre bud of each with
a sharp knife.
Frame Crops. The plants raised
from the September sowing may be
divided as directed for those of August,
but in addition, some of the cds varie-
ties may be planted on a warm border,
to have the shelter of frames and
hand-glasses. Some of the strongest
of .these may, in succession during
November, December, and January,
b6 planted in a moderate hotbed, being
removed with as little injury as possi-
ble to the roots, to bring them forward
for immediate ust?. "Whilst in frames
they require much attention. Being
watered and shaded until established,
they must afterwards have as much
light and air admitted as possible, as
well as a regular supply of moisture.
At night the additional shelter of
matting, and in severe weather an in-
creased covering must be aft'orded.
The day temperature should never ex-
ceed 80, nor fall below (to . The
plants may be, set in rows about six
inches apart; but of those which are
merely sheltering dining the winter,
on the return of mild weather at the
beginning of March or April, every
second 1 one must be carefully removed,
and planted in a warm border, at the
usual open ground distance.
To obtain- Seed. Some of the finest
and most perfect plants of each variety
that have survived the winter, or from
the forwardest sowing of the year,
should be selected. The seed from
any that have run up prematurely can-
not be depended upon. If two varieties
flower near each other, only mongrel
varieties will be obtained. Ekch stem
is to be tied to a stake as a support
against tempestuous weather. The
branches must be gathered as the
seed ripens upon them. It must be
thoroughly dried before it is stored.

LANDSCAPE GARDENING, as its name
intimates, is the composition of beauti-
ful scenery, so that all artifice is con-
cealed by the blending of trees, shrubs,
ground, and water ; thus forming vistas
gratifying as those which occur na-
turally. Admiration for such scenery
is an innate quality of the human
mind ; and successfully to imitate such
scenery requires judgment as well as
taste* It is not possible, without a
heavy outlay, to introduce any desired
species of landscape beauty upon a
given plot of ground. There is the
beauty of the level surface, quite un-
attainable without such outlay, upon
a surface which is abrupt and broken.
The beauty of the clay districts is not
otherwise to be secured upon those of
the chalk; neither on light uplands
can be arranged the dense beauties of
well watered alluvial vales. " Consult
the genius of the place" is an axiom
which has been derided, but which is
dictated by the soundest sense.
Under this general head we have not
space to enter fully into details ; but
some of these will be found, under
their appropriate titles, in other pages,
and chiefly borrowed from Mr. Whate-
ley, who has published more correct
views upow the art of tastefully arrang-
ing grounds than most men who have
written upon the subject.
