HE ac­com­pa­ny­ing il­lus­tra­tion shows a method of ob­tain­ing an au­tum­nal dis­play of blos­som in the wilder or semi-wooded part of the gar­den, which is at once very ef­fec­tive and beau­ti­ful as well as eas­ily and cheaply pro­duced. It is made by sow­ing the com­mon sin­gle or China Aster (Cal­lis­te­phus sinen­sis) broad­cast. In the course of the win­ter’s work, bare patches of ground are fre­quently made by the re­moval of shrub­beries, felling of old trees and such like op­er­a­tions; such places may, for one sea­son at least, very well be treated this way in­stead of be­ing at once sown down with grass.
