It is not necessary t) have your window garden consist of tomato cans or old saucers—a little ingenuity will suggest such improvements as this movable plant table VERANDA-BOXES, WINDOW-BOXES, VASES 129 swept position. A favorite combination is dracae-nas, Nutt or Beaute Poitevine, with the variegatedvinca as a front border. The lover of plants de-sirous of artistic effects will not be content, however,to go by fixed rules where so many opportunities forexpression of individual taste are offered. There are two w^arnings to be given in additionto the suggestions above. Do not attempt to crowdtoo many plants into the small space available; re-member that as a safe rule the most pleasing re-sults will be obtained by the use of a very few kindsand colors. A good way to be sure of not makingmistakes is to fill the boxes to within three or fourinches of the top, arrange the plants, still in theirpots, until a satisfactory picture is designed, andthen fill up with soil and plant.
