Gardening Column.., -- ------.. (By J. W. Robinson, of the Ormond Plant Farm Pty. Ltd.) Late Planting. When it begins to get towards tlhc end of July, many people have al erroneous idea that it:is getting late for planting deciduous trees, shnbs and roses, but as a matter of fact, 'if weather conditions are :right, it Id one of the best times for' plantiai, as the ,sap isN jist ;beginninlg. to inove, aid~d. the plants or trees shoulid tak, hold of the ground almost at once: Speaking of roses, although they have-been shortened back when you receive them from the nursery, it Is not to say they have been pruned: They will' require fuither cutting back before or just after planting. Miniature or Polyantha Roses.A I haive ofte before stressed the point regarding the planting of these ex-' tensively, but this will bear stressing again, as there is no flowering plant that I know of that gives a longer anid more continuous show of flower than these little gems of the rose world. To get the best effect they should be massed in colors. A good splashl of dark red, .carlet, flame, or pinlk is much better than a mixture of these colors, besides which planted in one variety the growth is even and a much richer effect is obtainied Bede of miniatures edged with some annual which will go with the colol gives a much better show than beds of mixed or one color annuals, to say nothing of a much longer flower ing period, and the plants are per manent. Sl~ring or Early Summear Flower. ing Sweet Peas.-Sweet peas sown now should flower in the late spring and continue on from then for some time,' especially if the flowers arc continually picked. Although the winter flowering peas are useful in as much, as.they come in very early, they are, not to be conipared for beauty, length of stem and size of flowers with .the s spring flowering types: ? Somoeof"'- th}e ":mor'e recent' varieties of these are magnificent. but to get the best results, fairly rich soil must be used and soil that has been deeply dlug. A liberal supply of either well rotted stable manure or well decayed cow manure will show a marvellous improvement in the size of the flowers and the length of the 'stems,: and the foliage will be more robust. Stocks.-The early planted stocks which are known variously as winter. flowering, Nice or Beauty of Nice type, will soon be coming into flower and some may have already flowered. This would give some people the idea .that it is too late' to, plant stocks; but the same type of stock'can still be planted iand will give good re sults. These stocks may be obtained in separate colors, such as pale pink; deep pink, salmon pink, flesh pink, dark purple, crimson, yellow, .etc., and beds planted out in these colors separately or in combination such as a row of one color andl the next row of a contrtisting shade or something that will blend well with it, give I better' show .than plantcd in it mix ture.. l?lMany people will ask the question: !'Are they double stocks 1" Practically all the stocks sold are sup posed to be double stocks, although there are always bound to be some single amongst them ; not that s thir matters, as personally I consider that a few singles lighten up the lied anil take off the heavy appearance which wouldlbe obtained if every flower was double. If a strain could be ob: tained to give all double flowers, ;i would soon runi .out, as there would be no singles to produce seed. For a lower growing type of stock, with compact growth, and which usually gives a bigger percentage of doubles, those known as the Giant Perfection Ten Week Stocks are good. These are piobably not quite as good for cutting as. the others, but they arc as good, if not betterus bedding plants in the iarden. They have the midvantage of doing better in the warm weather than the Nice type.

THE KITCHEN GARDEN. The lengthening days remind the home gardener that sowing time is approaching, and preparations should be made to ensure that seed beds are put in order for the reception of the ce'ed when sowing ldays arrive. The ground has previously been turned over during late autumn or winter and the elementt will have to a cer. tain extent broken down the ridges, but advantage should be taken of drying sunny (lays to break up thor oughly any lumps and dig all oved again and thoroughly pulverlse it so as the seed bed will be as fine as pos sible, thereby providing ideal condi tions for seed germination and sub sequent development of the various vegetables..

Where animal man?ire is not read ily obtainable, bone fertilizer will prove a -most excellent substitute, pure bone manrce 'being preferable to -bone and superphosphate. It should be applied at the rate of 4 to 8 ounces to a. square yard, and it has the advantage over. artificial manure ini that it possessessesinore en cluring qualities, whilst it stimulates ,! steady growth without genertiting coarseness,. Gardon cropis are meantime so to speak standing still. They will, however, profit by being carthedcup and the soil loosened around 'them before earthing ls proceeded' with. '+*h tends to encourage growth and more especially in brassicas such a? broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower, etc., ,the improvement will be immediately noticeable.' Peas which "are get "ting under weigh will be much beno fitted by being staked ; even the .dwarf varieties respond to a little ex tra care' in this respect. Small, itwi?gy stakes to 'which the tendrils can' cling are most suitable for them, and the result' will be most satisfac tory. Peas allowed to lie on the Igroumd readily, mildow and speedily rot. In a • border sheltered from strong winds and having a northerly aispect, provided the soil is dry and riable, it will. he found advantag cous to sow seeds of vigttables ae soon as possible, just a little of each of the most useful every day varie ties which will inature. loig before the main" crops which it may or may not be possible' to sow for many weeks yet.
