Of The Garden
Care of Geramlmns In Winter.
np HE ordinary method of carrying
M. geranimus over the Winter as used
by florists Is as follows:
A few vigorous young plants are
taken into a conservatory or green
house and cuttings are taken from
these during the Winter from which a
new supply of plants Is grown for
Spring use. The cuttings for the
Spring supply should not be made later
than January, if good, stocky plants are
desired for the next Summers use.
The ordinary householder who de
sires to keep his or her plants through
the Winter Is not usually the pos
sessor of a conservatory where he can
follow the method outlined above, and
any other method Is only dlsaDDOint-
lng, as the plants will look bad eo long
in the spring, and thn flowers are
never as nice as those from new, young
plants. The following suggestions may
help him to keep a part of his geran
iums, at least, throughout the Winter
season: Before the frost has killed
the plants dig up the geraniums and
place them in a cool, damp cellar. This
cellar should be cooler than that In
which bulbs are kept, ranging In tem
perature from 40 degrees to 50 de
grees; in other words, such a cellar
as is suitable for storing potatoes.
The plants may be placed in- deep
boxes, standing up and packed close
together with a little dry soil about
the roots. Geraniums are also some
times hung up by the roots on the wall
or from the joists. In Spring the tops
of these plants should be cut off with
in two or three Inches of the ground
and the roots again planted. A loss of
half the plants is to be anticipated in
following this procedure.
