Jekyll will send her plant order to Gomshall station within a fortnight; she suggests treating beds B and C the same as A as that area is formal; she will send rosemary and China rose for them; she has beautiful rosemary that will make a show at once; she will send a really good tarragon, and if the roots do not do well she will send more in the spring; chervil is easily grown from seed; she will leave out the Chrysanthemum maximum, though the form of hers is better.
