In My Garden

Much the best Michaelmas Daisies that I have seen have been grown by a singularly ruthless expert. It is hardly too much to say that the more the clumps are broken up the better they be, like a bashed walna:. At the same time I must confess that the most satisfactory patch with at was a solid lump of roots roughly exiled into a rough place and left to their own sweet will. It was there that the bees and butterflies chiefly collected. Among the singular wealth of flowers that will greet St. Martin is the Spanish Broom, the tenderest yet latest bloomer of 111. Of spring flowers the Ltmgwort is in flower alongside the Primulas and Alyssum.
