Cultivation of Celery.
The following directions for the cultivation
of this excellent vegetable, (which we tiud in
an exchange paper, uneredited,) are in the
xnaiu correct ; but we have known good celery
made fruin seed sown as late as June, in tbi
climate. It should be on the table of even
reader of the Farmer, during the winter and
spring month?, and we hope to see more atten
tion paid to its cultivation hereafter :
Verv earlv in the spring, if the frost is out
of the ground, prepare a small bed of light,
rich earth in a warm, sheltered situation, in
which the seed must be sown for an early
crop. Break the mould very fine, as the seed
is small, and rake the surface even ; sow the
seed, but not too thickly, and cover with light
rich mould, übout a quarter of an inch deep.
The plants should be kept thin in the seed-bed,
and picked out wlieu tit upon a surface of
fresh earth well manured. They should be
-watered and shaded until they take root, and in
drawiug from seed-bed, let some of the stron
gest plants remain, to be put out for an early
drill. They should be planted out before
they become too strong ; and if they have ac
quired a large ball of earth and roots, these
and the struggling leaves on the sides should
be cut away, in part, before planting out to
Trenches must be made early in the summer
(20th June) for the early, and a month Inter
for the main crop, at four and a half or live
feet distance, a foot broad and a foot deep.
At the bottom lay four inches of well rotted
dung, digging it in, or placing over it a cover
ing of three inches of rich earth, raked even,
in which the plants, now about six iuchcs high,
must be planted six inches apart, taking care
to remove all side-shoots. In hot weather
the plantation should be made in the evening,
a liberal supply of water should be administer
ed. When the sun is powerful, they should
be shaded until they take root,which will assist
in keeping the soil moist.
As the plants begin to grow hoe them on
each side, and between them, with a small
hoe ; and, as they further increase in growth,
proceed to earth or blanch them ; in doing
which, the soil to be used should be in a pulver
ized state, and prepared properly with the
spade. The stalks of the out side leaves should
be kept close up, to prevent the earth from
getting between the stems of the out side
leaves and the inner ones ; for if it be allow
ed to get there, it checks the plants and
makes the celery bad. A little earth may be
added every week or ten days, according as
the crop advances, always leaving about six
inches of the leaves above the surface of the
soil. Particular attention should be paid in
earthing up, that soil be dry, otherwise it is
apt to rot the plants and render them unfit for
For the autumnal crop the white is superi
or in flavor, but the red is said by some to be
better calculated for standing through the win
ter. If long and hard frosts be apprehended,
a quantity of celery should be taken up and
laid iu bed of sand or light earth, in n shed or
celler ; for wlieu the ground is deeply frozen,
it is sometimes impassible to get it with out
tearing it to pieces, aud it may be kept very
well for several weeks in a cellar.— Xctc Erg
KINDS OF GREEN CORN FOR TABLE rsr.—
Every farmer and every amateur grower of
horticultural products should plant various
kinds of corn, to be used for boiling or roast
iug while in its green state. Now, which are
the best kind ? Answer—the early Jefferson,
white flour corn, twelve rowed sweet, aud
The ear!}' Jefferson, if grown a few degrees
further South than where seed is procured,
will produce roasting-cars in sixty days from
the time of planting. The cars are about
eight inches long, and the corn white and a
little flinty, the kernels of good fair size, and
the taste almost sweet.
The white flour corn docs not mature for
roasting or boiling purposes under about nine
ty days. The ears are from nine to eleven in
ches long ; the corn a dull white, a very little
fliuty, kernels fair size, good for rating green,
uud all the overplus, when ripe, will grind in
to meal almost as white and handsome as the
best of wheat flour.
The twelve rowed sweet corn is an improve
ment on the old common sweet corn, having
larger ears and larger kernels.
The Stowell's Evcrgnen is a variety of
sweet corn that requires longer to mature
than any other variety. Ii furnishes a supply
of green corn very late in the season, the ears,
many of them, being suited to boiling in No
vember ; and if left in shocks in the held, or
gathered and hung up with the husks on, is
often good for eating duriDg the winter.—
Ohio Farmer, March 28.
PLANT EVERGREENS THIS MONTH.—Ever
green trees and shrubs may be planted at al
most all seasons, but we decidedly prefer the
middle of May in this latitude, and indeed
unywhere north of Virginia. Further south,
they may be transplanted a little earlier. As
a general rule, the best time is when the soil
has become settled and and somewhat warm
ed, and before the dry seasons ; or when the
voting buds are just pushing forth into a new
In another article wc have described some
of the best kinds. No manure is required for
evergreens. A good loam is the most appro
priate. If a heavy clay or light sand, it is al
ways better to dig out a space three to five
feet in diameter, according to the size of the
tree to be grown, and fill iu good soil at least
one foot, cr, better, two feet in depth. In
planting these, or indeed, any kind of trees,
great care should be taken to loosen the soii
well, and Lave the holes so large that the
roots shall not be cramped in the least, and
also provide good soil for their exteusion. A
little care of this kind will pay well, both in
the more rapid growth and in the longer life
of the tree.
llow MUCH TIMOTIIV SEED TO AN ACHE.
It is a well known fact that if yon do not sow
grass seed, weeds will occupy the spare gtound.
It is, therefore, desirable to sow just as much
seed as, when tillered out, will cover the entire
surface. If Clover is to be sown with it—as
is a common but erroneous practice, because
they do not ripen together—then twelve quarts
of timothy to an acre is sufficient. If the
meadows is to be seeded with timothy alone,
use not less ihau half a bushel of clean seed
to an acre.
