Hardy Fruit and Kitchen Garden. As formerly recommended, look over fruit remaining out of doors frequently, and gather it as it becomes fit. Also examine that stored in the fruit room, as there will occasionally be found a few decaying for a few weeks after housing, and these should be removed as soon as perceived. Keep the fruit room cool and airy, in order to allow of the escape of moisture given off by the fruit, which is considerable for a few weeks at first. Where it is intended to make fresh planta- tions of fruit trees this season, the ground should be prepared at the earliest convenience, and any fresh soil to be used for planting should be thoroughly ex- posed to the action of the weather so as to have it in a mellow state when wanted for use. If not already done, clean and dress strawberry plantations, clearing away all useless runners, giving a good dressing of manure when necessary, but be careful to select that which is thoroughly decayed, and which can be covered without the necessity of digging deep or injuring the roots. The principal crop of celery should now be kept rather closely earthed up, using quicklime and soot freely to destroy slugs. Give every attention to autumn broccolies; also to autumn and winter lettuce, watering with liquid manure to make them crisp, and tying up in regular succession. Blanch endive and cut away all superfluous shoots from tomatoes. Brown and Bath cos letttuce, as well as Hammersmith cabbage, for early spring work, should now be pricked out; more especially if getting what is technically termed proud.—Gardeners' Chronicle.
