All tender plants, such as Geraniums, Cinerarias, Cupheas, etc., that have been turned out during summer should now be brought in and housed to protect them from frost; and all herbaceous plants that have done flowering cut down, so as to give the garden a neat appearance. THE ORCHARD requires little care at this season, further than gathering the fruits as they ripen, and keeping the ground clear of weeds, but where young fruit trees have been planted last year the ground should be kept dug round them and free from weeds, as, by keeping the ground courages the growth of wood, lj trees healthy and better able to I attacks of blight.
