Plan Contents of Window Boxes With an Eye to Color and Exposure

Wind Evaporation, Heat
And Overcrowded Soil
Harmful to Blooms
Check Existing Conditions
Before Buying Plants for
Assurance of Success.
By W. H. YOtJNGMAN.
HAVE you ever had a secret longing for window boxes acroes the bal
cony, for the front windows, along the edge of the porch or at the
side of the steps? They do add to the appearance 7n summer and
help to put color into an otherwise drab corner.
A porch or window box should be from 8 to 10 inches deep and 10 to
12 inches wide, and as long ns the window is wide, but not over 5 or 6 feet.
If a longer box is needed use twoH
smaller ones plared end to end. Made
from cypress, due to its lasting quali
ties, they last a long time, but almost
any kind of lumber will do. Metal
boxes with their built-in provision lor
watering are very good.
Most window boxes are subject to
wind evaporation and the reflected
heat from the house. Also they sup
port quite a few plants, considering
their small area. Therefore, the soil
In a window box must hold more than
the usual quantity of water and plant
food, and it should be prepared with
care or purchased from a florist. A
good soil mixture contains two parts
garden loam, one part well-rotted
manure, leaf mold or peat moss and
one part sand. If peat moss Is used,
• fertilizer should be added at the
rate of one-fourth pound to a 4
foot window box. At least once a
month supplemental feedings are de
sirable. If the soil surface in the
window box is mulched with a half
inch or more of peat moss there will
be less trouble with evaporation.
A scheme that appeals more to me
than the mixing and care of soil is
to place potted plants in a box filled
with peat moss. This permits shifting
the effeet at will, sinre it is quite easy
to Ret a fev; potted plants at the
florist.
Wnether you use soil or peat moss
In the box, there must be provision
for drainage. Half-inch holes every
4 or 5 inches, covered with hroken
pots or gravel, are usually sufficient.
For cacti or succulents a layer of
gravel Is desirerable.

dislikes. The following are a few
of the most commonly used: Abuti
lon, begonia (tuberous and fibrous),
heliotrope, fuchsia, geranium, pe
tunia, verbenas and lantana. Upright
foliage plants include dracaena, coleus,
croton, pandanus, aspidistra, sanse
vieria and various ferns. For the edge
of the box there are dwarf lobelia,
dusty miller (Centaurea cineraria),
vinca minor, wandering Jew (Trades
cantiai, Kenilworth ivy, sweet alyssum
and oxalis. Others include the be
gonias, ageratum, impatiens i sultan
balsam), torenia, flowering bulbs,
pansies, and the succulents such as
agaves, aloes and hardy cactus. Un
usual plant material includes the
dwarf cockscomb, canas, climbing
nasturtiums, philodendron and roses
—polyantha and rouletti.
Pink geraniums, white marguerites
and blue ageratum give a pleasing red,
white and blue effect. Another com
bination is the red geranium, ivy,
sweet alyssum and blue lobelia. The
petunias—rosy morn and blue bal
cony—with white geraniums and a
dracena, make a striking combina
tion. Blue periwinkle (vinca minor)
and oranga lantana is another, and
for an early spring combination there
are the potted tulips and forget-me
nots.
Dwarf evergreens and ivy make a
very pleasing winter effect for the
window or porch box. Well-balled
specimens should be used and they
need time to become established be
fore freezing weather sets in. Also
they need to be watered during the
winter.
TN SELECTING plant material for
the window box, consideration
should be given to the exposure, sun
and wind. A hot western exposure Is
the most difficult for which to pro
cure colorful material. On the north
side of a building shade-loving ma
terial is used, and if protected from
wind, the lovely tuberous-rooted be
gonias are a possibility. Three or
four kinds of plant material are in
most cases sufficient for a pleasing
effect. One or two flowering plants,
an upright foliage plant and a trail
ing vine to cover the edge of the box.
The selection of colors and conse
quently the flowering material is
purely a matter of personal likes and
The Old Gardener Says:
A new columbine, which is en
tirely distinctive in appearance, is
being offered this season and
seems likely to. become very popu
lar with garden makers. This
columbine does not have the
spurs characteristic of most
kinds. In fact the flowers more
nearly resemble those of the
clematis t.haji those of familiar
columbines. For that reason it
is called the clematis-flowered
columbine, or to use the scientific
name. Aquilegia clematiflora.
This variety grows about 18 Inches
high, is free flowering and very
attractive. The colors range
through all the pastel shades.
This aquilegia is easily grown
from seed.

Lilacs Must Have
Some Company.
£?VERYBODY loves lilacs, and It
won't be long now until these
lovely plants will be putting on their
yearly show. Here are a few tips on
what to do to insure a successful
blooming period. First of all, lilacs
must have company of their own kind.
One lone plant that doesn’t bloom will
be sure to take a new lease on life if
you put in another nearby. Lilacs love
a sweet soil, and since most of Wash
ington and nearby suburhs are on the
acid side, go out now and spread a
generous double handful of ground
limestone or so-called agricultural lime
around the ground above the roots.
Cut all the blooms you want, as lilacs
should be pruned immediately after
flowering to keep the bush shapely and
encourage a thicker growth. There
are some very beautiful French hybrid
lilacs that are both reasonable and
easily found in most nurseries. They
come in every color from white
through pink and pale blue to dark
purple, in both double and single
forms.
Serviceable Roller.
A serviceable lawn roller can be
made from a section of an old hot
water storage tank. Cut out a section
about 24 to 30 inches long, place a
% -inch iron pipe in the center as a
hub and fill with concrete. Solid
concrete is apt to be too heavy, so
use a few tin cans to lighten.

Ideal Arrangement for Garden Area of a Row of Three Houses.
.- ■ ■ . . /to ---- ■ — ■
Sorvice, A»\y
thebsuaj BngptntJUncl Uninteresting Arrangement-.
By MARGARET NOWELL.
WASHINGTON has many large areas of “row houses.” This type of
house, popular with the office worker with little time at home, gives
the most house with the least expense and care. In many cases the
back yard area could be planned for greater outdoor enjoyment.
The individual space is usually about 60 by 40 feet. By using three houses for
a unit an area 120 by 60 wguld be available. The plan shows a play area for
children concentrated at one end, with kennel and run for pets at the other
end. Instead ot,three tradesmen's entrances and three fences breaking the
space into useless and uninteresting strips, we have one entrance and a walk to
serve the three doors. At the children's end there is a shed for the wagons,
perambulators and kfddle cars when they are not in use, a sand pile, swings
and a see-saw. This is partly screened by low shrubbery, but visible from all
three houses. There are two large trees for shade. Pets need not be denied
when they have a place of their own and do not run loose over the whole area.
The main portion of the lot is a green lawn surrounded by flowering shrubs
with three or more individual conversation groups, with garden space accord
ing to preference. Though this space is arranged for greater spaciousness,
beauty and enjoyment for the three families, it will also demand consideration
and good neighborliness.

Now Is the Time to Prune Forsythia
When bloom is over, before new shoots appear—go to work
on the forsythia bush! Further delay will necessitate cutting off
new growth. To keep the shrub’s natural grace and line, remove
about one-third of the oldest canes each year. Take them off
at the ground line. Too frequently we see bushes spoiled by
being pruned off at the top, resulting in a “bare-leggedwoody
bush with the flowering wood only at the summit. The shrub
shown above is an example of beauty achieved by proper pruning.

Queries

Relative Values
Of Spray or Dust
Are Discussed.
(Editor's note — General ques
tions on gardens, etc., if addressed
to Mr. Youngman. care of The
Evening Star, will he answered in
this column. For personal replies
on specific problems, a stamped,
self-addressed envelope should be
inclosed.)
Q. “Can iris be moved now?”
A. Iris are usually moved after the
blooming period. However, they can
be aafely moved now without serious
• injury to the season's bloom by tak
ing a ball of earth—disturb the roots
as little as possible. Water well for a
few days.
Q. "Is it too late to prune roses—
and how far should thev be rut
back?”
A. When rases are in full growth
they should be pruned only lightly.
Renjove all dead and diseased wood,
the weaker branches and shorten the
others very moderately.
Q. "Will forsythla grow from cut
tings made now?”
A. Yes. But they are soft wood cut
tings and will need protection from sun
the wind. Use an old fruit jar for
cover. Grow them in a cool, moist
place, partly shaded, until well rooted.
Q. "Should I prune my new roses
any further? They were cut back
when I got them."
A. Only remove dead or broken
branches. After the new growth Is well
started there may be some dead stubs,
which should be removed.
Q. "Which do you recommend,
■pray or dust?”
A. Which do you prefer? Both have
their advantages and disadvantages.
As a matter of fact, it does not make
much difference which you use, so long
as you maintain a regular schedule of
application. Sprays last longer and
hence require fewer applications. They
can be directed more easily than
dusts, but many of them discolor the
foliage. Dusts are easier to apply and
take less time for application. They
must be applied more frequently, as
they are more easily washed off by
shower or sprinkler. In the case of
cut flowers this is an advantage. For
the small garden a small dust gun is
not expensive and is a time saver, as it
takes a few minutes to mix the spray,
and when through spraying to wash
out the sprayer. As a matter of fact,
the small gardener who has just a few
things to protect is more apt to dust
them properly than he is to spray. A
spray, however, can be put on, even if
the wind is blowing, and most of us do
not enjoy breathing the dust.
Formerly spraying was not so easy,
for the materials had to be prepared,
but today there are many prepara
tions on the market which only require
diluting to be ready for use.
A satisfactory homemade dust for all
purposes is made as follows: Dusting
sulphur, 7 parts; calcium or lead arse
nate, 2 parts; hydrated lime, 2 parts,
and tobacco dust, 2 parts (parts by
volume).

Cultivating Phlox.
Phlox are happiest in a good garden
loam and thrive with liberal feeding,
but will live and bloom In spite of
neglect. For a good display phlox need
cultivation, liberal applications of ma
nure, and ample moisture during
blooming. Divide and reset them every
two or three years. Phlox may be
propagated by division, root cuttings,
or slips. Cut off the spent flower heads
before the seed are formed to stimu
late a second crop of flowers.
Their one fault is that they are
subject to mildew and a so-called leaf
spot or rust, which is particularly bad
on certain varieties. Red spider can
be a serious pest, but is very easy to
control. As to the diseases, varieties
vary greatly as to their susceptibility—
Miss Llngard, one of the best whites, is
immune. Unfortunately there are no
authoritative reports listing them ac
cording to this weakness. Most of,
them are fairly cheap, however, so the
gardener can afford to experiment.
Plant phlox from 15 Inches to 3 feet
apart for good air circulation as a
means of preventing the mildew. Dust
ing sulphur will prevent all of the
phlox pests, provided the leaves are
, kept covered with it. It is a prevent
ative and not a cure. Also, red spider
may be cleaned up by turning the hose
on the plants with such force as to
wash them off.

Flowers and
Vegetables
Combined
Forms Attractive
Garden With No
Loss to Crops.
'J'HE idea of flowers and vegetables
can be carried out in many ways.
The simplest and least expensive is to
make a border of one or more rows of
flowers. This border may entirely or
only partly surround the plot, de
pending upon the quantity desired.
Where more flowers are wanted, the
border may be used, and flowers also
planted in rows with or between the
vegetables. The surprising thing about
such a layout is that the. vegetables
themselves, if cultivated cleanly, are
as attractive as the flowers.
Where space is available, real land
scape planning may go into the vege
table patch. A fence, with an arbor
gate for vines or climbing roses, will
segregate this part of your garden
from the ornamental garden and at
the same time frame it in such a man
ner that it may be built into a picture
in its own way. The vegetables may
be divided into four sections, with
paths bordered by alyssum, lobelia,
petunias, dwarf marigolds or other,
annuals. A bird bath or sundial in the
center where the paths meet makes
a good focal point. The back of the
lot may have a lattice fence or shrubs
or a border of tall annuals such as
African marigolds, cosmos or sun
flowers.
Consider four vegetable garden
seriously when you lay it out this
year, and you can make it pleasant to
look upon and work in, with no loss to
your kitchen crops.
There are more delights in the vege
table patch than are appreciated in
the dining room: as much fun growing
your own beans as your own bouquets.
To get the full pleasure from vege
table growing, consider how beautiful
the garden can be made, and how
decorative in form and color are carrot
tops, spinach leaves, the slender green
onion and the fruits of the squash,
pumpkin and egg plants.

Moonlit Ghost Gardens,
So Beloved in the Past,
Awake New Interest
Effect of White Flowers
Gleaming Through Dark
Was Eerily Beautiful.
By JOHN J. DALY.
GHOST gardens are of the past, evidently, for even the experts In the
Botanic Gardens know little, if anything, about them. Yet, once
upon a time ghost gardens were as popular as rock gardens and
herbaceous borders.
Just the other day. In the midst of spring flowering, several letters
arrived to baffle the experts. Also a number of telephone calls:
‘‘What Is a ghoet garden?” was the general query.
Near as the boys could figure It out, a ghost garden Is one In which
the ghost flower predominates. ♦
As to the ghost flower, it is a wild
plant, an herb of the family Pyrol
aceae, allied to the heath, and it is
called also by two other names—corpse
plant and the American ice plant.
Cool and cold-looking as an icicle,
the ghost flower in this part of the
country—and it grows in profusion in
Maryland and Virginia—is also known
as Indian pipe. It is found usually in
rich woods. A smooth, waxy white
plant of unusual appearance since it
is shaped like a trumpet, the ghost
flower grows always near decaying
vegetable matter and is somewhat
parasitic on roots.
Stem erect, slender as a match
stick, the ghost flower grows to
heights between 4 and 10 inches.
Small scales resembling leaves are
all over the stems of ghost flowers, j
which terminate in nodding blooms.
These, on a fine moonlight night give
forth an eerie appearance, and people
with imagination see fairies atop the
ghost flowers. Moonlight and ghost
flowers. That is the proper admixture
for a ghost garden, but there must be
something more—the holy ghost flower.
* * * *
■y/'ERY appropriate at Eastertide, the
holy ghost flower is the poetic
n*me given to the orchid in some
South American countries, or holy
spirit flower.
Last, ghost garden known in Wash
ington was out Chevy Chase way, near
the old Corbin estate—now a memory.
It is said by old-timers that the
original settlers in old Chevy Chase
were very fond of ghost gardeas: that
they were scattered over the country
side and that ghost gardeas were
mainly made up of lilies of the valley,
to make a sort of carpeting for the
feet of the fairies; of ghost flowers
and the holy ghost flowers—with an
occasional daisy showing its head.
Also ghost gardens were really
places where young love flowered in
the moonlight—and the fragrant
breath of magnolia sometimes per
meated the atmosphere of a ghost gar
den, with that two-week miracle of
them all, the lilac, having first place
on a June evening.
Whatever the origin of the ghost
garden, it went out of style some
years ago—and only a few flower
lovers know just what caused the de
cline. Certainly the ghost garden
was given over to all-white flowers,
with certain types of roses admitted
to membership, for the rose, and es
pecially the white rose, has its place
in any company.
* * * *
STORY is told of thp old ghost
garden out by the Corbin estate—
the estate, by the by, which was once
the home of Gen. John J. Pershing.
It seems that long, long ago—short
ly after the Civil War—when Gen.
Corbin lived at what he called High
Point, where Rittenhouse street cuts
across Broad Branch road, one of the
gentlemen attending the party became
just slightly boisterous. He had taken
one too many, argued rather loudly
to put over his points. As he was
an ardent spiritualist, the host sug
gested that he go. Bt midnight, out
side to see the ghost garden.
“A ghost garden?” the • gentleman
exclaimed, in amazement. "Never
heard of such a thing. ..."
"Nevertheless, I have a ghost gar
den,” said Gen. Corbin.
“My word! Have you ever men
tioned that to the London Spiritual
Society?”
"No!” Gen. Corbin snapped. “This
Is my own private affair—my own.
private ghost garden. ...”
"Who visits it?” the man asked.
"Some of my fallen comrades," the
general said.
That was enough to excite the
spiritualist's curiosity, and he agreed
to go out, all alone, and wait in
silence for the appearsnce of the
ghosts, scheduled to come and com
mune with each other at midnight,
or thereabouts.
From midnight until 2 am. the
believer in fairy tales waited for the ,
ghosts to show. They did not come *
back on earth that night, but the ’
ghost garden accomplished its pur
pose. It kept the gentleman outdoors
Just long enough to let him cool off,
lose the last remaining vestige of his
jag—and sent all hands home happy
with the knowledge of what a useful
thing a ghost garden can be, on oc
casion.
If there ever is a ghost garden in
Washington again it will undoubtedly
be somewhere on the Capitol Grounds,
for the two men most interested in
such a project—after all the queries
leveled at them—are Wilmer Paget,
assistant director of the Botanic
Gardens, and William A. Frederic. •
landscape gardener of the Capitol
Grounds. As David Lynn, architect.
of the Capitol, is now acting director
of the Botanic Gardens, he will prob
ably tell the two foremost authorities
on flowers in this part of the country
to go ahead—soon as they gather ail
necessary data on ghost garden*.
