so diverse In size and habits that one can readily be found appropriate for any situation affording a wealth oT bloom over a long season suitable In some of the many varieties for every floral purpose the dahlia now holds high rank as a lute summer flower" writes a specialist from New York State where conditions are practically the same as in a large part of Canada The dahlia will grow almost anywhere but as it makes its best showing late in the summer and early in the fall the chances for a long season of satisfactory flowering are best where killing frosts are not usually early In tlie season However this will exclude few places for many varieties although not set out until the middle of June will flower freely by the middle of August if not checked In growth This means that the plant should be well cultivated and watered during dry weather When set in the garden about the middle of June they uro much better prepared to combat lirat and drought of summer than those set out earlier as they arc more likely to grow without a check and be stimulated by August showers to set a full supply of buds Many of these buds too survive early frosts which kill the foliage and are able to produce good blossoms by drawing on the sap and plant food stored In tlie Juicy stems Plant In Succession Beans and corn are two vegetables which give -especially good results if planted at ten-day
