REAL’ ESTATE/
New Garden Catalogues Form Invaluable
Aid to Those Who Like to Dig in the Dirt
BY OLIVE HYDE FOSTER.
The garden lover is always entranced
by the coming of the new year's gar
den catalogue. Whether he possesses
a garden or not, the book always fasci
nates: but if there be the smallest bit
of ground available for cultivation, then
such a list becomes invaluable.
More big fine catalogues are coming
out every season, yet few, if any, sur
pass some that were issued many years
ago. In fact, I have one bearing the
date of 1912 that I have never seen
equaled, and always keep close at hand
for reference as to the finest trees and
shrubs. Many of its rare treasures are
not to be found in other lists, and yet
should be familiar to every gardener.
As in the case of cotoneasters, of
which I speak often, only the best nur
series catalogue them, for they are still
new to the general public. Yet some
specimens should be in every garden,
and I would recommend an evergreen
on account of its beauty in Winter.
Nursery catalogues prove invaluable in
acquainting us with the best varieties
of old favorites, as w'ell as the most re
cently tested and approved introduc
tions from all parts of the world.
Moreover, the very finest are pro
fusely illustrated, so that the buyer
can get a good idea of the general ap
pearance of a new specimen, and be
guided as to its adaptability to a par
ticular spot on the home grounds.
Illustrated tree catalogues are inter
esting. as well as highly educative, for
surprisingly few people know as much
as they would like to about choice trees.
In many localities only a few native
trees have been cultivated, when rare
varieties from remote parts of the world
under the same climatic conditions
would thrive beautifully.

Hardy herbaceous plants usually are
catalogued by themselves and often are
indexed by name, both botanical and
common, with the needed situation, in
sun, shade or partial shade: color, ap
proximate height and season of bloom.
Such a book is invaluable as it enables
the amateur to plan for color schemes,
as well as succession of blooms, from
early Spring to late Fall.
Indeed, such a catalogue just at hand
has one page devoted to “Plants for
Special Purposes’’ and includes “Plants
for Cut Flowers," “Ground Covering
Plants for Shady Positions,” “Ground
Covering Plants for Sunny Positions,”
“Plants for Drv, Sandy Soils,” “Plants
for Moist Grounds.” “Fragrant Plants.”
“Plants for Bees” and “Grasses for
Cutting.”
The same book also includes “Ever
greens for Rock Gardens,” “Annuals for
Bedding Plants" and “Herbs and Roots,”
which many of us would be glad to
tuck into a corner of the garden, such
as chives, horseradish, hyssop, lavender,
marjoram, mint, rhubarb, rue, rose
mary, sage, tansy, tarragon and thyme.
These all carry thoughts of old gardens
and are well worth cultivation for old
memories, as well as actual practical
present, use, and nowadays give a gar
den a mark of distinction.
The list of woodland plants, in an
other section, is equally interesting and
valuable, as many people have a small
spot where little has been found that
will grow', that would perfectly accom
modate these treasures from the woods.
The usual seed catalogue lists annuals,
biennials and perennials, and thus ac
quaints new gardeners with the differ
ent kinds, and also gives the informa
tion enabling the novice to build a new
garden so as to provide plenty of
flowers the first season, while waiting
for the slower growing aristocrats to
reach maturity.

authorized to cast the allotted votes for
his entire board, whereas at the annual
Summer conventions delegate repre
sentation is based on numerical
strength.
Birmingham realtors have endeavored
to secure the Midwinter meeting of
their national organization for several
years, but w r ere not successful until this
year. It was recalled that 'at all of the
Summer conventions held in the East
or Midwest during recent years a large
delegation from Birmingham was al
ways on hand to boost their city.
Having succeeded in securing the
meeting this year elaborate plans have
been made for the entertainment and
comfort of visiting realtors during the
week. All arrangements for the con
vention meeting are handled by the
convention secretary of the national or
ganization and all matters pertaining
to hospitality features are handled by
the local realtors.
In addition to Mr. Miller, local real
tors leaving Sunday for the convention
are B. F. Saul, Frank Bell, Percy H.
Russell and John A. Petty, executive
secretary of the Washington board.
