The roots should be lifted on a dry, sunny day and soil should be left on the canna ruots. Under a greenhouse bench is not an ideal place for storing these roots. There is likelihood of drip from above and temperature fluctuations are Miiich greater than in a dry shed or cellar, where suitable shelves are avail- able for storing them on. As far as the caladiums are con- cerned, you will find that, if they are well dried after lifting, they will be freer from dry rot if packed in boxes or barrels of dry sand. For small growei's of these it hardly pays to keep them over winter when they can be purchased every spring so cheaply. The cannas will winter finely in any shed or cellar where a temperature of 45 degrees is maintained. A few degrees higher or lower will not hurt them, but it is important that they are not ex- posed to drying fire heat, or dry rot will attack them. Leave a good ball of earth on your roots and store on shelves in this way and you will have much less trouble with dry rot. C. W.. GOOD EABLY AND LATE SORTS. Will you kindly let me know what are the best three double chrysanthe- mums in white, yellow and pink? Please mention three early and three late va- rieties. They are to be planted in solid beds. My location is southern Pennsyl- vania. W. N. I should not like to state which are the best mums, because tastes differ widely and some varieties do much bet- ter in some sections than others. The following list, however, can be depended on throughout the count
