List of Plants for planting the Flower-Garden fig. 50. By Mr. Pringle.

Throughout the following arrangement, the plants mentioned first will be those for the first show of flowers. The low-growing plants or bulbs, called edgings, are to be planted in patches about 6 in. within the edgings of the beds ; and in order to assist the amateur, or those who have not been in the habit of providing for flower-gardens, I have given the probable number of each plant that will be required, or at least the number that will be necessary to fill the bed ; but, as the number required to stock a bed will often depend on the strength or weakness of the plants, sometimes two or three less or two or three more than I have mentioned may be required.

An Arrangement of Plants for the Flower-Garden fig. 50., by which, when the

Beds are once stocked, they will require very little annual Preparation to keep up the Stock of Plants ; and which may be suitable for some Gardens where there is not the Convenience of much Glass, and where it is desirable that the Whole should be kept up at comparatively little annual Expense of Labour.

Remarks. By each of the above arrangements a good bloom may be obtained during the flowering season ; and out of the two a third might be arranged. Thus, by taking the beds, 2. 3. 6. 10. 14. 19. 20. 24. 25. 29. 34. and 38. of the first arrangement, and joining them to the second, the garden would then be a rosary; by which, with a proper selection of successional kinds, with the bulbs and other plants used as edging to the beds, a regular supply of flowers might be obtained.-J. P.

Art. IV. Notice of a heating Apparatus in the Gardens of His

Grace the Duke of Wellington at Strathfieldsaye. By John Johnson, Gardener there. The apparatus (fig. 51.) consists of a stove (originally Dr. Arnott's) and two copper cylinders. The stove contains two copper boilers 1 ft. deep and 3 in. wide, which form the fire-box of the stove, out of which the boiling water flows by the top pipe into the cylinder, and returns by the lower pipe into the bottom of the boiler. The cylinders have each thirty tubes, 1 in. in diameter, extending through the whole length (amongst which the water flows), giving out an extent of heated surface

Fig. 51. Heating Apparatus at Strathfieldsaye. equal to the outside of the cylinder, and through which the air circulates. The dimensions are, stove 1 ft. 6 in. square, and 3 ft. 9 in. in height, including the ornamental cap on the top, which is 4 in. deep; cylinders 1 ft. 6 in. in diameter, and the same height as the stove, including the caps.

It consumes exactly one bushel of coke per day, the half of which is supplied every morning and evening. The water is supplied by a covered valve near the top of the cylinder, as seen in the figure. There is a small pipe for evaporation at the back part of the cylinder. The ornamental caps are movable, and conceal the tubes of the cylinders and the feed-hole of the stove. The smoke escapes by a tube at the back of the stove, communicating with a flue built in the wall.

There are two of the above apparatuses in the conservatory at this place, which is 67 ft. long, 27 ft. wide, and 21 ft. high, and which for the last four years has been sufficiently heated to preserve the plants from injury from cold or damp.

Strath fieldsaye, Feb. 11. 1843.
