Text Appearing Before Image:
avoid the mistakes of the past, andprofit by them by starting your basket-plantsat once. This reminds me that a correspondent hasasked me to give her the names of a few ofthe best hanging plants. Here is a list ofkinds that any amateur ought to be able togrow well: Tradescantia. Saxifraga sarmentosa. Moneywort. German Ivy. (Senecio.) Lysimachia. Sweet Alyssum. Oxalis, pink and yellow. There are other good plants suitable forbasket-use, but the kinds I have named willbe likely to give the best general satisfaction. Hanging plants can only be grown well bygiving them all the water they need. Beingexposed on all sides, and in a stratum of airconsiderable higher in temperature than thatabout the plants on the window-sill, the soilin which they are planted dries out rapidly,and they are likely to suffer from lack of suffi-cient moisture. Some persons tell us theynever have any luck with hanging plants.The reason why, ninety-nine times out of ahundred, is—they dont give them waterenough.
