Notes:
Slide lecture booklet - "Small gardens and terraces" - Slide # 100. Finally, the first prize awarded to the Garden Club of East Hampton, Long Island. Tuberous-rooted begonias (started in the house in flats of peat moss and sand in February or March) are planted in the semi-circular beds in June and bloom profusely until frost. Behind them is a white phlox, constantly clipped honeysuckle growing on a wire fence and a lovely pale pink Rose of Sharon. These flower beds contain the spring bulbs of narcissus, tulips, scilla, etc. and the begonias, which are shallow rooted, are set out right over the bulbs.
