Calla Lilies Are Used to Advantage in Some Places.
SPEAKING OF HEDGES

There are also, in the Pacific region,
lhedges of geraniums five feet high,
hedges of calla lilies and of roses, but
the substantial, serviceable evergreen
hedge is the last word for elegance and
utility, and the New Jersey coast of
fers the best possible field for its
Here is how the landscape garden
ers of this section handle the plants:
Before the plants are brought to the
ground a quantity of top soil is pro
cured for the purpose of filling in
about the roots. They need lots of
moisture to keep them healthy and to l
maintain the rich green color. Then
the transplanting is done i'n the spring
and the plants are handled with care
to prevent the roots from being dried
out by the wind.
The evergreens that run from 12 to
24 inches are set from 8 to 12 inches
apart. The larger plants can be placed
with 18-inch intervals.
In order that the evergreens may be
bushy, they are pruned when planted,
and this makes the subsequent shaping
of the hedge easy. The spring time is
taken for the pruning, because the
plants are then resuming their growth
and the process finds its best results.
Starting at the beginning, the first
thing to do is to dig a trench wide
enough not to cramp the roots, so that
they can spread fiat and not touch the
sides. Then plenty of well-rotted stable
manure is worked in the trench with
the soil. After the planting a coating
of manure is placed on the surface of
the soil, covering all of the earth that
has been disturbed. This mulch is left
in place for a year, and is then usual
ly worked into the soil.
Where double-row hedges are re
quired the plants are set in rows six
to nine inches apart and the plants
from 6 to 16 inches apart in the rows.
The whole eastern coast is begin
ning to show the effect of hedge cul
ture. Newport, the queen of summer
resorts, Long Island and all of the oth
er show regions are literally marked
with the natural substitute for the

One need not award cut glass and
