In his remarks on the growing of the dahlia Mr Cooper pointed out that that flower needs a sunny aspect, shleltered from ground winds and away firom the root of peppers, pines and cedars that make tile ground so dry in summer. Heavy soil should be dug deeply, limed and clods broken up. Too much clay is a dis advantage. Horse manure and sand was required, and the beds would be better raised a little above the sur rounding level. In sandy soil cow manure should be used freely, and dahlia tubers should be planted in a new position every year. Dealing with fertilisers Mr Cooper said dahliad do best in soil that has been manured the previous year or two and has turned into mould. Leaf mould is very good for heavy clay soils.
