Woman's Home Companion: Begonias of all kinds grow best In a solí that is quite rich, somewhat sandy and porous. A soil that is heavy, soggy, and apt to hecome sour cannot be used witïi good results. The matter of drainage is also an item in the culture of begonias not to be overlooked. In potting the plants provide ampie drainage by plaoing broken pottery,cinders or soms strawberries, and to each pound allow ona such matter in the bottom of the pote. Flowering begonias can be bedded out in the summer with success, if plenty of water is given and a fairly sunny spot is selected. Those of the Rex type will be best if plunged in a partially shaded location.
