When watering plants avoid wetting the foliage as much as possible, as

they will not bloom as freely as if the leaves were dry. Geraniums are

known to bloom a great deal more freely where the roots are confined to

a small space, and the soil about them kept rather dry; especially is

this so with the double sorts.

Geraniums may be grafted successfully; the short growers, like Mrs.

Pollock, Mountain of Snow, and Happy Thought, can be top-grafted on to

the strong-growing kinds, like Gen. Grant, Madam Lemoine, and other

strong-growers. If half a dozen sorts are grafted on a single stock,

they will, when in bloom, appear as a curiosity.
