- Digging and Storing Spring Bulbs Next Big Job on Gardener’s Calendar
«
Foliage Should Be Dry
And Yellowed Before
Move Is Attempted
Control of Aphids Is Also
A Matter of Importance
At This Time of Year.
By W. H. YOUNGMAN.
DIG hyacinth bulbs and store as soon as the foliage has begun to dry to
avoid losses due to rot. This is particularly true of those bulbs planted
in the heavier clay soils as they do not seem to keep as well in our
heavy clays as might be expected. If left in the ground they become
, infected with a basal rot. The first signs of this are missing spaces in the
beds, or of bloom from a number of small bulbs which are formed on old
----
cuttAg badly. Be patient. Leave it
until it begins to dry before using
the lawnmower. The bulbs need the
foliage to buld up strength for next
year’s bloom.
Crocus properly grown increase in
size as well as in number, but if
not allowed to grow will soon disap
pear. For this reason thought should
be given to the location of crocus
plantings. In the edge of the shrub
border, under shrubbery, or among
other flowers, are usually satisfactory
locations considering the dying foliage,
j The above applies equally well to
i narcissus foliage.

i rJ'HE only reason for pruning an
azalea is to keep the bush sym
metrical and compact, and the one
time of the year to do it is when
the petals are falling. If pruning is
delayed more than a short time after
the petals have fallen cutting will
remove some of next season’s flowers.
! Some pruning is beneficial, as it forces
I the bush to make short flowering
branches

^PHIDS are beginning to make their
appearance in the garden. The
little pests are easily overlooked when
walking in the garden, but not so
| their damage. Aphids, or plant lice
as they are sometimes called, suck
i the sap and stunt the flowers, and
, by picking on the tender new growth
! check it. Furthermore, they spread
I diseases from plant to plant.
| All in all, it pays to use the spray
gun on aphids. Nicotine sulphate
is the most common remedy—one to
three tablespoonfuls to the gallon of
water with a little liquid soap. Ap
plications on two successive days
seems to be the best way to control
them. Soapy water also is good.
And remember the spray must hit
the bug to be effective!
bulbs that are only slightly affected by
the rot.
Stored in a cool, dry place over
summer and replanted each fall,
hyacinth bulbs should greatly increase
in size. And large bulbs produce large
bloom spikes.
Hyacinths planted in a light, well
drained soil, however, may be left un
disturbed for years—that is until the
plant food in the soil in exhausted.
If taking up and storing hyacinths is
too much trouble, try planting scilla
campanulata next fall instead. These
can stand much more moisture in the
soil than hyacinths.

'T'ULIPS. also, will withstand more
1 moisture than hyacinths, and may
be left in their beds until the bulbs
divide too badly. In the small yard
where the space is needed for other
flowers, and it, Is not desirable to leave
them until the foliage has matured,
they may be lifted and healed-in in
some out-of-the-way spot.
In lifting tulips for healing-in care
should be taken not to disturb the
roots any more than is necessary. Also,
when placing them in the trench care
is advisable to see that there are no
air spaces between the balls of earth.
When the foliage is well yellowed
and has begun to dry then the bulbs
should be lifted from the trench, dried
and stored in a cool, dry place. In
drying, spread in a shaded place for
several days. If dried in the sun the
protective coat is very apt to split.
When well dried remove the old roots
and stem before placing in baskets or
trays for storage. Paper sacks are not
satisfactory containers for bulb stor

Grow Greens
For Salads
Yourself
Various Lettuces
Easily Produced
In Garden.
'J'HE basis for every bowl salad con
sists of green leaves. Novelty and
change are desirable in the diet, so
it is a mistake to get into the habit
of using the same materials for salads
all the year around.
Since head lettuce has become avail
able every month in the year, there
is great temptation to let the salad
course become a routine matter of a
slice or wedge or head lettuce, spat
tered with dressing. After a winter
of this, spring finds the palate some
what weary, perhaps inclined to re
gard the salad course as health food,
rather than a tempting, delicious
treat, as it should be.
To the home gardener, who can
spare a few square feet of garden
space for producing leaves, an inter
esting salad program is possible. First
there is leaf lettuce, so different from
the heading type that it seems an
other vegetable. It excels in flavor, it
takes the dressing better, and the doc
tors say its green leaves are far richer
in vitamin A.
Leaf lettuce comes In two types—
tile butter leaves and the crisp leaves.
The butter leaves are thicker, and
darker green, with finer flavor, the
experts say. Crisp leaves are lighter
green in color, thin and somewhat
brittle. Examples are Black Seeded
Simpson, a butter type, and Grand
Rapids, a crisp leaf type. Experts
give first place in their esteem to the
butter leaves.
Romaine or cos lettuce, which pro
duces oval leaves, standing upright,
is highly esteemed by French salad
experts. It is a good late lettuce,
standing heat better than the leaf
varieties. The leaves can be bleached
by tying them up as they near ma
turity, but this merely changes their
color, and lessens their vitamin con
tent.
For summer leaves, chicory, also
known as endive, is more available
than lettuce, which usually runs to
seed In midsummer. Endive may be
had with curly leaves, or broad leaves.
Many like the curly leaves best for
summer and broad leaves for fall, as
they endure frost and become sweeter
after the frost comes. Sow both types
in drills, thin out to 6 or 8 inches.
Leaf crops grown in a similar man
ner, and much esteemed in bowl sal
ads, Include corn salad, which is very
hardy and can be harvested late in
the fall, and garden cress, which gives
a pungent flavor to the salad.
In the fall lettuce may be grown
again, and the Chinese cabbage leaves
are delicious. Chinese cabbage may
be grown in the spring, with rich soil
and an early start. But in midsum
mer it always runs to seed. A late
crop has no such tendency, and heads
are easily produced in the fall, from
plants started in late June.
All leaf crops demand rich soil.
They must grow fast without check,
otherwise the leaves are tough and
have a bitter flavor. Plant food
should be applied to the soil in which
they grow at the rate of 4 pounds to
100 square feet.
I Vest Pocket Garden, No* 6
By MARGARET NOWELL.
'T'HE tinest garden might be a window box or a trellis around a door, yet
it is amazing how the most ordinary window may be transformed with a
few flowers, and what a delightful "welcome home” feeling your entrance door
may give if you surround it with a simple trellis.
At the base of the trellis, on either side of the door, place a wooden tub
filled with good soil. Plant in this ivy or any other trailing cover that pleases
you. I suggest ivy because it is green all year round. Until it gets nicely
started tuck in a few morning glory seeds, or moonvine, or climbing beans for
a quick effect. By the time these have finished blooming your ivy will be
growing well.
If your window boxes are in the sun fill them with balcony petunias. The
new small ones with an effect of a star at the center are lovely. A few morn
ing glories with these can be trained around the window. If your windows are
shaded most of the day try Lantana. ferns, heliotrope and wandering Jew.
Not only will these little gardens give you Joy, but they will be an asset to
the whole neighborhood.
Now Is the Time to
Plant Gladiolus.
is the time to plant the glad
iolus bulbs. If we are reconciled
to fighting the thrip then we should
grow a few of the better sorts of glads.
Glads do best in a fertile garden loam
in full sun. For the best results an
ample moisture supply is needed dur
ing the flowering stage.
By planting several sizes of bulb6,
or by planting one size at various
depths, bloom may be had over a fairly
long season for a given variety. By a
careful selection of varieties the season
of bloom may be stretched out. The
following list of varieties suggested by
Mr. C. M. Purves of the Takoma Hor

Of His Own to Plant
Just as He Pleases
Hours Spent Out of Doors
Will Prove Beneficial to
Both Body and Mind.
By BETSY CASWELL.
ROM the woman's point of view, g
mend it—good exerciae for the
grounds. Nothing in the world
and thighs than the Inevitable s
ing that go on during the hours spent
planting new "pretties” and pruning
play—and the best feature of the
whole thing is, for weak sisters like
myself, that our dose of exercise is
being heavily sugar-coated with the
pleasure of achievement along lines
other than Just those of our "shape.”
The fresh air does us good; being
quiet and away from the "madding
crowd” soothes our nerves; the sun
shine gives us a good measure of
necessary vitamin, and all the mental
kinks and quirks are automatically un
snarled for us. We pick up our clip
pers and shears and trowels at sun
down, dirty, happy, and at peace
with the world. We may be tired,
physically—but that is a pleasurable
weariness, far removed from the nerv
ous fatigue that comes from mental
exhaustion.
If we grown-ups profit so much
from our gardening hours, think how
much good it would do the youngsters
in the family! After hard days at
school, or on long, idle Saturdays,
tending their own patch of ground
would be a welcome and wholesome
recreation for them. Share your gar
den with them, teach them to love
the plants and flowers that grow and
bloom under their care and encourage
them to spend all the outdoor mo
ments that they are able in getting
back to Mother Nature and learning
the joy of "green things growing.”

Asters That
Resist Wilt
Make Bow

New Strain Shows
Ability to Throw
Off Disease.
TP YOU have trouble growing asters,
why not try some of the wllt-resist
ant strains this year. They are a fam
ily of asters which have been grown
in soil infected by the wilt disease
(most common ailment of asters) and
have shown ability to throw off the
disease and survive where others die.
They have exceptional vigor and
seem to overcome all difficulties bet
ter than the standard bred strains.
They are not resistant to any specific
disease except wilt, and where the yel
! lows disease is prevalent, not all the
will-resistant plants will escape. But
some will, and In general it has been
found that those who have trouble
growing asters get far better results
with the resistant strains.
Nearly all the types and colors are
now obtainable in wilt-resistant strains.
A succession of asters may be ob
tained in two ways—by starting the
late types early in the house or in a
frame and malting successive plantings
until they may be sown in the open
ground, or by sowing early, midseason
and late types at the same time.
The giant branching type is one of
the most satisfactory and the show
iest of the asters. It makes a beautiful
bed, and is fine for cutting, its huge,
delicate blossoms being as soft and
finished looking as the florists’ cut
flowers. They grow up to 3 feet in a
wide range of colors.
Sisson and bleeding heart; yellows,
golden dream and golden poppy;
smokies, Bagdad and Mother Machree;
blue, blue admiral and Vellchenblau;
white, maid of Orleans; orange, Spirit
of St. Louis; buff, Wasaga; rose, dream
o'beauty; red, king sultan, and laven
der, minuet.
To Cover Fences.
Heavenly blue morning glory will
cover an unsightly fence or building in
a few weeks time.
For Best Results.
Spading should be done with ver
tical cuts so as to go as deep as pos
sible.
The ostrich feather, or crego type,
with their plume-like heads, resemble
the chrysanthemum and are almost
as large. The petals are curled and
twisted into a soft ball of delicate
color, supported on a straight stem,
which makes them ideal for indoor
decoration. Like the rose, a single
bloom will show ofl well in a vase.
More sensational is the California
sunshine type, with its daisy-like con
tour which belies the aster heritage.
Their loosely placed outside petals
usually contrast in color with the
creamy yellow or blue centers, and
they grow up to 3 feet tall.
Rose and pink with lavender and
purples are good colors to mix with
white asters, but as with other an
nuals, they show ofl better when
planted in solid colors.
The seed should be sown thinly to
make transplanting easy and save
waste of plants in spindling, over
crowded seedlings. They should be
transplanted from the original seed
box or pot 1 inch apart as soon as
the first true leaves are formed and
grown until ready to set into the open
ground.
Sweet Herbs.
A few sweet herbs in a corner of
the garden will be welcome kitchen
material. They are inexpensive when
grown from seed.

It has been my experience that a
very few seeds will do for a child s
garden. He likes the idea of planting
the little pellets, and then, miracu
lously, to see the green shoots forcing
their way through the earth. But us
ually that process is too slow for him,
for his garden as a whole. He is apt
to lose interest if he jnust wait for
results too long. Therefore, I suggest
that you let him plant a packet or
two of the faster growing seeds, and
then for the rest of his little patch
buy him young plants or seedlings.
Let him choose what he wants, and
only interfere with his selection when
it is impractical because of soil or ex
posure. Then explain to him why
such and such a plant won't do well
in his location. It is awfully discour
aging to a .:hild to find his flowers
wither and die after he has done his
best to care for them conscientiously
—you can save him many a heart
ache by restraining him from buying
the wrong thing.
HE SHOULD be encouraged in buy
A ing flowers that do well for cut
ting; he will be mighty proud of the
first bouquet he is able to pick and
send to his teacher, or a sick friend,
or to decorate the dining room table
at home. It carries the pleasure of
the garden just that much further
into his daily life.
Give him advice and assistance
when he asks for it. Otherwise, let
him alone; only, keep a distant eye
upon him in ease he gets into real
difficulties. Talk to him as man to
mam on the subject of gardening and
display as great an interest in his ter
ritory as you do in your own. He will
work happily near you during the
sunny hours, content in your true
companionship and common labor.

The Old Gardener Says:
The rose that created a sensa
tion at all the spring flower shows
is the one called R. M. S. Queen
Mary. It is a glistening salmon
pink in color and seems to be just
the shade for which rose lovers
have been looking for years, for
wherever it has been shown it has
not failed to excite admiring
comment. The buds are long and
pointed and the flowers are large
and beautifully formed when fully
opened. In addition to this, the
flowers are borne on plants which
are strong and vigorous in their
growth. The leaves are thick and
lustrous and are reported to be re
sistant to mildew and black spot.
The flowers are produced freely
and are delicately perfumed.

Q. Is it advisable to spray such
strong and healthy bushes an the
weigelia, Japanese quince, for
sythia, snowball, spirea, Rose of
Sharon, mock orange and hy
drangea?
A. There is probably no need of
spraying unless it is the mock orang
and snowball which may be afflicted
with a blight that blasts the flowers.
A light application of bordeaux would
tend to insure a crop of bloom this
season.
Q. Is it necessary to spray ever
greens? If so what is the appro
priate insecticide? My evergreens
appear to be doing remarkably
well in spite of the lack of spray
ing; only see a bag worm now and
then during the summer on them.
A. Evergreens seldom need spraying
Occasionally they are afflicted with the
red spider. A good strong hosing will
usually control that pest. The bag
worm is most easily controlled by
hand picking.
Q. What should hollyhocks, li
lacs and phlox be sprayed with to
keep the leaves in a healthy con
dition?
A. Hollyhocks, lilacs and phlox need
protection from rust and mildew.
Bordeaux is recommended for this
purpose although it discolors the
foliage. Spraying is a preventive
rather than a cure and, therefore,
the foliage, particularly the under
side. should be kept weil coated with
the spray.
Q. My rhododendron is drying
out, and looks like it's dying, can
you tell me what is causing that?
Should it be blooming now?
A. Your rhododendron (r. Biaxi
