"What varieties of roses would you ad- vise a beginner to plant, and at what time should they be planted and how far apart? How many blooms can I reasonably expect per hundred plants the first season, and when is a rose plant at its prime! How many years are the plants profitable! Will roses, or any other plants, do well if planted in solid beds raised about eighteen inches, with heating pipes run close to the bed in the walk? In making this kind of bed, should it be filled in with cinders or with gravel? I planned to use about four inches of cinders, a layer of old manure and about six inches of good, sandv garden soil. Will it be necessary to feed the plants the first year? In the following years, what will be the best fertilizer to use? C. F.—Ohio.

I do not think it pays small growers to bother with green- house roses. It is far better to buy them from the big specialists. C. W. PROBABLY NEED FEEDING. Please give us some information as to whether it would be advisable to feed our Killarney roses with liquid cow manure and cut out the blind wood, of which there is a considerable quantity. We also wish to know how many roses each plant should average per year. X. Y. Z.—W. Va. If Killarneys or their sports have any quantity of blind wood, it is usual- ly a sign that the plants are starved. Killarneys are heavy growers, needing frequent feeding, and liquid manure is one of the best means of feeding them, especially at
