We should scarce have an opportunity of adverting to the dainty qualities of half, and must soon lose the agreeable company of them all.

Pagina 52 - ... beds filled in the interior to the full height of the slate. I know an edging of this description made sixteen years ago, which is still in the highest perfection ; at first, the outside of the slate was painted green, which gave a great neatness to the garden ; soon after, an edging of Gentianella was planted at the inside of the slate and close to it, which came into great beauty, and hung over the outside, forming an edging at top of three or four inches wide, requiring very little attention,...
Pagina 171 - Class 6. Order 1. — A very splendid and numerous genus, chiefly tropical, and principally indigenous to America and the southern extremity of Africa. Flowers deep red.
