Pruning is a difficult thing to give oral advice upon. [...] Text books always advised that the top eye should be pointing outward. This was quite correct for all tall and upright growers, but was all wrong when the spreading varieties, such as Medea, were being dealt with.

Taking colour as a guide, I will list for seventh the lemon-yellow Medea. It is satisfactory in growth but dwarf as compared with the Cochet. The wood and foliage are very dark, more so than Perle des Jardines. The flowers are produced freely, generally up to exhibition standard with anything like fair treatment. With high-feeding exceptionally fine blooms may be expected. It is a variety figuring largely on our show boards.
