The little plants in this "flat" have been transplanted with a knife blade, as shown in the preceding picture, to give them an opportunity to show their possibilities. They are set out carefully in rows-for Mr. Burbank's work is always neat and artistic; but the new soil does not differ from that in which they were germinated. The only difference is that here the plants are no longer crowded, and each can be given individual attention. The comparatively few individuals here shown may be all that are left from the scores of "flats" that originally germinated thousands of seedlings.
