It is a good time to lift overgrown plants for division. Only young pieces round the outside should be chosen. They should be set in groups of about three pieces round the edge of a shallow depression. trodden in firmly, and gradually earthed up next spring. The old routs can be burnt or composted. Delphiniums and other plants severely attacked by slugs should not be moved until spring. Cuttings of blackcurrant, rose and privet should not be forgotten. Biennials may be transplanted still, and those set out earlier should be well trodden in now. E. J. KING.
