The roses usually cultivated In Canada may be divided into four groups  so far as hardiness is concerned:  "Hardiest Group���������Rosa Rugosa and  Hybrids, Austrian ..briars, Provence or  Cabbage roses. Damask roseB and  Moss roses.  "Roses of the   second    degree   of  hardiness���������Hybrid  Perpetuals or Ply-!  i  brid Remontant, Climbing    roses    of  the Multiflora group, and Dwarf Poly-  antha ��������� roses. ';  "Roses of the third degree of hardiness���������Hybrid Tea and Austrian Hybrids (Pernetiana)  roses.  "Roses of the fourth degree of hardiness���������Tea roses.  "The hardiness ,ot" the individual  varieties varies considerably with the  groups. ,  "Roses of this group need little or  no protection in most parts of Cana-  da.,The others must be protected except in very favorable (localities." '  . Thus writes- Messrs. W. T. Macoun,  Dominion horticulturist, and F. E.

G; STEWART.  the flower lover. The information that  is given is complete and thorough.  "Site and Soil," "Plants and Planting,"  "Cultivation," "Winter Protection,"  "Insects and Fungous Enemies" are  all described. In fact, the bulletin is,  as nearly as possible within its limits  of 39 pages, an encyclopedia on roses  that can be cultivated.in this country.  Many different   varieties    are    dealt  - [j  with, tests and experiments are told  about, and particulars given that can  hardly fail to prove valuable to gardeners, whether amateur or professional. Every section of the country is  covered and detailed lists given, with  description and illustration, of .good  hybrid tea roses for. the garden, new  hybrid tea roses and good hybrid perpetual roses. Cultivators of the loveliest flower in creation after reading  this bulletin, no matter what their  past experience may' have been, it is  safe to say will be encouraged to try  again and to persevere. Some of the  pointers may be thus^condensed:  A soil should be chosen which is  uaturally cool but not.cold.  Strong two-year-old budded plants  are the best to plant.  An abundance of moisture is need,  ed, but no swamps.    ;  Soils need to be kept rich by the application of manure.  Pruning is a necessity, but requires  study and experience to be successfully performed.  To obtain the first flowers one must  relentlessly cut back the bushes each  spring to within six to twelve inches  of the ground.  It is better to prune early In the  spring than in the autumn.  Roses in Canada should be protected  from severe wintry weather by being  earthed up and covered with evergreen  boughs or canvas.  Good foliage is essential to the producing of good roses;    hence    every  ; Roses grown In the open, are usually propagated by budding; raising  them from cuttings not always being  satisfactory.  The time for budding varies in Canada, but from the latter part of July  until September the stocks should be  in condition in some part of the country.
