THE SUNDAY STAR
Washington, D. C.
WCTtI. MAKCt
Rose Society
Plans First
Spring Show
Upcoming event* of the Po
tomac Ro*e Society Include It*
first spring show—perhaps an
annual event—the annual dinner
April 37 at Emory Methodist
Church and two or more tours.
The show will be held In con
junction with the Colonial Dis
trict meeting of the national
group May 21 and 22, the show
to be held in the patio of the
Department of Agriculture May
31. Arthur C. Barrett is chair
man.
The tours are set up for April
23 and June 4, the former to the
National Arboretum in Northeast
Washington and thence to the
Bherwood Garden in Baltimore.
The June 4 trip to Hershey Rose
Gardens in Pennsylvania an
nually actracts many members
and friends.
The Arboretum has taken on
considerable luster as a spring
attraction and out-of-town gar
deners come from great dis
tances to see the 100,000 azalea
plants growing there in natural
situations, not to mention the
many flowering dogwood and
crabapple trees.
The society may soon sponsor
a trip to Williamsburg, and
there is probably to be a tour
to West Grove, Pa. and Conard-
Pyle Garden on “red rose rent
day” in September.
Spray Now to Curb
Tree Scale Pests
Scale insects stunt growth,
produce gall-like swellings and
actually kill branches or entire !
trees. Common pests are beech j
scale, cottony maple scale, elm |
scurfy scale, European elm scale, I
juniper scale oyster shell scale, i
pine needle scale and San Jose
scale.
Miscible oil or lime sulphur
sprays are recommended by ex- j
pert*. Avoid using lime sulphur
near buildings as it stains paint.:
Oil spray that drips or drifts
on barberry, pachvsandra and
Japanese red maple may cause
Injury.
These are the trees to spray: !
VPI Pathologist Tells Method
Os Controlling Soil Nematodes
Liquid soil fumigants applied l ;
to the soil about two or three ;
weeks before planting effectively
control nematodes in the home
garden.
S. B. Fenne, plant pathologist j
at VPI, says the home gardener.
can buy the fumigant in 1-quart !
to 5-gallon containers.
Here are directions for use of j
the fumigant:
First plow or spade and rake !
the soil to seed-bed tilth. Break !
up clods and remove trash. Soil !
temperature should not be lower j
than 50° nor higher than 83* at]
time of application. ' ;
Then with a hoe or small,plow,:
make furrows in the soil 12‘
Inches apart and 6 to 8 inches
deep. A fruit jar with two nail'
holes punched in opposite sides
es the metal cap makes a suit
able applicator. Fill y 2 full with
the fumigant and recap the jar.
Walk along the furrow dribbling
the liquid in the bottom of the
furrow. One pint should treat
about 200 feet of furrow. It may i
be advisable to test first with
Water to see how fast to walk.
Immediately after application
cover the furrow to seal in the
fumigant gas. Sometimes it’s a
good idea to pack the soil lightly
after covering the furrows.
Wait at least two weeks before

PORTULACA—TypicaI of a large group of fast-germinating
bloomers is portulaca, which takes only 10 days. Some
gardeners scatter the seed on top of the ground in late
February or March. They are prolific bloomers.
For oystershell scale—fruit trees,
elm, ash, beech, birch, willow,
lilac. Tuliptree scale—tulip trees.
Cottony maple scale Norway
maples. Lecanium scale—sugar,
Norway and silver maple; Unden,
hawthome and sweetgum. West
India peach scale flowering
crab, apple, flowering cherry,
lilac, privet, catalpa. Juniper
scale juniper, arborvitae, in
cense cedar and cypress. Pine
needle scale—most pines. Do
not spray fir or hemlock. On
evergreens, lime sulfur is a safer
spray in amateur hands than
dormant oil.

planting anything in the treated
soil since the fumigant is toxic
to plants and germinating seeds.
If the temperature during the
two-week waiting period is low
(below 60”) or if there has been
a lot of rain, increase the time
lapse to three weeks.
Plant seed and follow usual
practices in caring for garden or
flower beds. If fumigant was
used as directed, nematodes will
not be a problem.
