Credit might well be placed be

A Lavender ami Kose Fxlging
Dwarf ageirl.um and the dwarf

one of the most pleasing color ef
fects lor the edging of borders or
for solid beds that can be planted.
The lavender and rose combina
tion is always harmonious and
both are a sheet of bloom from
early in the summer until frost.
Both are easily raised from
seed. They should be planted a
foot apart or even as close as
eight inches, the ageratums stand
ing closer planting than the petu
nias because of the compactness
of their growth.
The lobelias of the dwarf com
pact types give sheets of deep
glowing blue or lighter snaaes
and their myriads of tiny flowers
almost hide the plants.

The portulaca or rose moss is
an annual that will give a show

only to be sprinkled on the soil
where they are to bloom. This
plant will not germinate until the
temperature suits it, but there
need be no worry about it for it
will appear in its own good time
and makes an excellent edging. It
should bo thined to at least six
inches apart and in a short tifne
it will cover the soil. It must have
The Pref-wiou.s CnrumlNT
Many gardeners complain of
having no luck growing cucum
bers. It must be admitted that
the life history of the "cuke"' is
rather a tempestuous' one. for it
is subject to more kinds of bugs
blights and mysterious ailments
than any other plant in the vege
table garden except its close rela
tives, the squashes and melons.
An early start with cucumbers
if one way to get the better of
some of the troubles. As the cu
cumber cannot be transplanted
with any degree of success, it has
to be Ueated a little differently
from the ordinary vegetable. The
seeds should bs sown edgewise in
individual pots abont the middle
of April. Paper pots sold by any
seed house are satisfactory, a?
they are cheap and unfold away
from the ball of earth so the
plant may be transplanted with
out disturbing the roots
With a running start, the plant
is better able to withstand the
early attacks -of beetles and can
be sprayed readily or dusted with
some of the common Insecticides
sold for the purpose.
The encumber needs a light
sou and if the soil is rreavy i
should be lightened hv mlrinir n I
sifted ashes or sand. It also likes t
a couple of forkfuls of manure S
buried beneath It to furnish fer
tility and hold moisture, for with
its liking for light soil it also
likes moisture, a combination
hard to arrange in the ordinary
garden. Granted that the cucumber
flourishes and escapes the rava
ges of insects which an indus
trious gardener should be able
to control, it often fails to pro
duce enough cucumbers to pay for
the energy devoted to It. In most
cas?s a precocious infant is to
blame. Often the first blossomj
will produce a fruit far in ad
vance of the others. The strength
of the plant is thrown to this sol
itary "cuke" and the rest fail
to get a start. If a precocious cu
cumber appears before there aro
any further signs of fruits form
ing, pick it off.
Kpurvinjf on Potatoes
Bring the seec potatoes to the
light and give them a warm piaoe
if you wish an early crop and a
brg yield. Experiment stations
all over the country seem to agTee
that rerouting potatoes before
planting not only hastens the ri
pening of the crop but it increas
es the yield materially.
They must be sprouted in the
light and the sprquts will be green
and stocky. The white, anaemic,
lanky sprouts of the dark cellar
have just the opposite tendency.
Expert potato growers have trays
in which to lay the lutrers while
they sprout before cutting them
up for planting purposes, and thev
carry them gently and in small
quantities to the rows so that the
sturdy sprouts may not be broken
off in transit or in planting.
The sprouts developed in the
light will not be more than a hall
inch long and roots will start to
develop at their base, ready to get
to work as soon as they come in
contact with tb.j soil. It is a fine
way to get the jump on the season
and have the potatoes going be-

There is no
shows so directly the result of
caro and culture as the potato.
Culture makes the difference be
tween S5 and 90 bushels per acre
and 300 or even 400 which are
not uncommon In Europe, while
as high as 800 bushels have been
grown on trial acres. Europe is
far shead of the United States in
the potato growing industry. They
cultivate intensively, the English
acreage being 198 bushels and

erican potato grower's eyes would
bulge out at any such yield.
Care In selecting seed potatoes
is one of the most necessary fac
tors in a successful crop and care
should be taken to avoid those
with pointed ends. Plant deeply,
four or five inches is none too
much in friable soil, and see that
this depth is the real depth. The
depth of a furrow with soil
thrown up on either side Is de
ceptive. Th depth should be
measured from tne soil level.
The potato needs rich, heavily
fertilized soil. It needs as much
soil attention as any garden crop,
and it is in this respect that the
gardener often falls and the rea
son that American potato grow
ers do not get as heavy yields as
foreign gardeners wno iavi.

but it would take care of toma
toes, peppers, radishes, young
onions, carrots, a few beets, string
beans or other vegetables that do
not need too much room.
Here is a little chart for ready
reference to determine just how;
much can be planted in a given
space. It gives the distance be
tween rows or hills if the vegeta
bles mentioned grow in that form.
Six feet Hills, winter squash
such as Hubbard, watermelons.
Five feet Cucumbers, musk
melons. Four feet Tomatoes, if not
trained, summer squash.
Three feet Pole beans, bush
peas, potatoes, the- last may be
planted as cloe as two feet at a

cauliflower, string -beans (bush),

parsnips, salsify, onions, kale.
One foot Spinach, beets, mus
tard, swiss chard or other greens,
head lettuce, endive, turnips.
Six to eight inches depending
on richness of soil Young on
ions, leaf lettuce, cos lettuce, rad
ishes, mustard and smaller greens.
Provided a- good strain of beet
seed is procured, there is a great
deal dependent upon its cultiva
tion. To be tender and readily
cooked, the beet needs a deep and
cool soil. It requires for its best
development a cooler soil than the
carrot. Beets often will grow bet
ter quality in a partially shaded
part of the garden than in the
full sun where the hot summer
rays harden the roots. The beet
should, not be expected to be at
its best and tenderest if a hot
spell has checked its growth.
It Is one o! the most easily
groTrn of vegetables and tjiera
fore is neglected, perhaps, more
than any other garden vegetable,
merely being pulled for greens by
way of thinning after the plants
have attained considerable growt'j
with the result that the roots of
those left to make the mutured
vegetables are disturbed and their
growth checked temporarily.
Pull the beets for greens Care
fully so that the others in tha
row are not disturbed. See that
the beet has good det?p soil with
plenty of humus and if the soil
is naturally a warm soil, give the
beet a shady corner.
It doesn't make any difference
to me what these new fangred
garden sharks say, I plant my po
tatoes in the dark of the moon,
and I sure get good spuds. If
the moon can turn the tide why
can't it do something to potatoes?
I give 'era the best soil I'Te got,
hoe 'em clean all the time, and
swat every bug that shows. They
tell me I can forget the moon and
keep right on raising good pota
toes if I manure, hoc and bug
'em. but just the same I was
brought up to plant potatoes in
the dark of the moon and in the
aark of the moon they go. There's
good potato years and bad potato
years, but I stick by the dark side
of the moon.
