    Flowers

    Franklins Tartar

    The Carnation here exhibited is a seedling raised by Mr. Franklin, of Lambeth Marsh, an ingenious cultivator of these flowers, whose name it bears we have not figured it as the most perfect flower of the kind, either in form or size, but as being a very fine specimen of the sort, and one whose form and colours it is in the power of the artist pretty exactly to imitate.
    The Dianthus Caryophyllus or wild Clove is generally considered as the parent of the Carnation, and may be found, if not in its wild state, at least single, on the walls of Rochester Castle, where it has been long known to flourish, and where it produces two varieties in point of colour, the pale and deep red.
    Flowers which are cultivated from age to age are continually producing new varieties, hence there is no standard as to name, beauty, or perfection, amongst them, but what is perpetually fluctuating, thus the red Hulo, the blue Hulo, the greatest Granado, with several others celebrated in the time of Parkinson, have long since been consigned to oblivion, and it is probable, that the variety now exhibited, may, in a few years, share a similar fate, for it would be vanity in us to suppose, that the Carnation, by assiduous culture, may not, in the eye of the Florist, be yet considerably improved.
    To succeed in the culture of the Carnation, we must advert to the situation in which it is found wild, and this is observed to be dry and elevated, hence excessive moisture is found to be one of the greatest enemies this plant has to encounter, and, on this account, it is found to succeed better, when planted in a pot, than in the open border, because in the former, any superfluous moisture readily drains off, but, in guarding against too much wet, we must be careful to avoid the opposite extreme.
    To keep any plant in a state of great luxuriance, it is necessary that the soil in which it grows be rich, hence a mixture of light loam, and perfectly rotten horse or cow dung, in equal proportions, is found to be a proper compost for the Carnation. Care should be taken that no worms, grubs, or other insects, be introduced with the dung, to prevent this, the dung, when sifted fine, should be exposed to the rays of the sun, on a hot summers day, till perfectly dry, and then put by in a box for use, still more to increase the luxuriance of the plants, water it in the spring and summer with an infusion of sheeps dung.
    The Carnation is propagated by seeds, layers, and pipings, new varieties can only be raised from seed, which, however, is sparingly produced from good flowers, because the petals are so multiplied, as nearly to exclude the parts of the fructification essential to their production.
    The seed must be sown in April, in pots or boxes, very thin, and placed upon an East border.
    In July, transplant them upon a bed in an open situation, at about four inches asunder, at the end of August transplant them again upon another bed, at about ten inches asunder, and there let them remain till they flower shade them till they have taken root, and in very severe weather in winter, cover the bed with mats over some hoops.
    The following summer they will flower, when you must mark such as you like, make layers from, and pot them. Elliss Gardeners Pocket Calendar.
    The means of increasing these plants by layers and pipings, are known to every Gardener.
    Such as wish for more minute information concerning the culture, properties, divisions, or varieties, of this flower, than the limits of our Work will admit, may consult Millers Gard. Dict. or the Florists Catalogues.
