out - early - theyL.will receive the
benefit of all the spring .rains
and become quite well estabiisnea
before the, hot days of lummer.
There ate only certain hardy
herbaceous perennials which . are
Considered to do best it pianiea
in thtt fall J and most of these can
fc nlan ted early In spring it they
r handled carefully. Those few
which are l said to taae more
kindly to fall planting are " the
early spring- flowering varieties
' sneh as - bleeding heart, colum
bine. hepitlcar iris and peonies.
Practically all are hardy lines
with the" exception of the Madon
na lily, and can best be planted
in the. early spring. '
" The important thing to- remember-la
the spring planting of
hardy herbaceous perennials is u
elect varieties suited to the soil
nd conditions under t which, they
are to grow, and then prepare the
ii a denth of 8 inches if
possible. . - . - ' '
Trees and shrubs are planted
more often in the spring than at
any other season. In fact, few
ahrubs sneh at .; bnterfly . bnsh,
sweet shrub, sumac, tamarix and
planted at any other time than
spring. - ,
such trees as surar and rea
maple, beech, flowering dogwood,
white birch, sweet gum, and tulip
tree, as well as all the-magnolias
and, poplars are considered tin-;
safe for plantings at any time of
year, except in spring, especially
in the northern. , climates where
the winters are "Very severe.
Conifers Should -
-Coniferous evergreens do best
In most eTery section when trans
planted during the spring." Some
growers gay it is best to handle
them Just as the new growth is
starting in late siting, but spring
is such a busy time that it isn't
possible for a person to get them
Just at that time. . v- I
HoweTer, if the " plants - are
properly protected so that the ball
of earth around the roots does
not dry out before the plants are
planted, and the soil Is kept fair
ly moist around the plants after
set. successful results may be ex
pected. Spring planting of fruit trees,
such as apples, pears, plums,
peaches, and cherries are almost
certain to be successful it the
plants are properly handled when
placed in the ground. Grape Tines,

From this It may be seen that
spring is really the golden oppor

is as it should be. What other

The water garden should also
be of special appeal to the lazy

and no weeding. At first thotfgbt

sort of gardening to begin. But
Mr. Bauer j even dispels this
thought; - . -

is excellent, but if you cannot do

the evaporation. It is really a lot
less work having a water lily gar
den than most folks suppose."
A ' few ' additional ' pointers
which Mr. Bauer added were:
"Water lilies like a sunny; loca
tion, although they will' bloom
fairly well in semi-shade.1 Use
only one root to a tub, or if you
are lucky, enough to have a small
pond. ' one root to each . three
square : feet. - Unlike other lilies.
water lilies should - be planted
during the growing season, from
April to September.' A new fish
added to the pool keep It free
from insects and greatly decrease
your mosquito supply.
In planting the water lily tu
ber, set the crown of it Just even
with the surface of the soil and
eover It with an inch or two of
the sand or fine gravel over it.
Some growers advise keeping the
water level but a few inches over
the sand at planting time in order
that the ?warm';, sun may better
reach it. Then of course, . the
water level must be raised until
blooming season. 5 i
There are a lot of varieties In.
the water lily group and some
are not at all. suited to the small
tub or even the very small pool.
The grower from whom you pur-
enase your tuber should be able
to prevent you making a serious
mistake in this line. Among the
smaller Tarieties which are list
ed for "tub purposes are the red
Ulorlosa, the Marllao Rose, which
Is fragrant and good for cutting,
the., changeable, Paul Harlot,
changing from a clear yellow to
an orangish-plnk (if you can
imagine such a shade), the Yel
low, Pygmy,- the August Koch, a
deep blue, and -the Gracilis, .
pure white. There are many oth
ers.' Two of the beet pink ones
are the-Mrs. C. W. "Ward And
the General ; Pershing. In some
of the smaller pools such as the
Rubra Rosea, a carmine, the
white Juno, and thepink Bisset
will do' very welL
But I am not coins- into Tarie
ties of water lilies. There are too
many and nearly all of them are
lovely. You will all enjoy visit
ing some of the aquatic gardens
during blooming ; season, which
begins in April as a rule.

; -: Depletes Soif : ;
By . HOWARD ZINSER
t Next -to thorough preparation
and' good seed, comes proper fer
tilization as a. most, "important
factor in' developing a good lawn.
Most of the ills of lawn mainten
ance are caused-by lack of plant
food. There is a tery heavy, drain
on soil supporting a lawn because
a crop la being harvested every
time the lawn Is . mowed, and
without fertilisation, : the coil
gradually becomes depleted which
causes bunchy grass and .weeds
and moss creep in to take possession,'.'-
t ' 'v-' -
Good rotted barnyard 'manure
used to be the means t applying
plant food. But this is question
able" practice now even if it could
be obtained because of the eter
present weed seeds that get scat
tered over the lawn through this
method; It Is much safer and Sim?
pier to use a good complete com
mercial fertiliser, aheep r guano,
or a home mixture of nitrate, su
perphosphate and muriate of pot
ash. Bone meal, blood meal and
fish meal are alio good,
"Food" la Needed , .
Twice Ewh Yw .-
s In order to secure a nicely kept
lawn tome such plant food as
mentioned -should be put on at
least, twice a year. If a ' complete
commercial fertiliser - la used,
broadcast it on at the rate of .25
pounds to the , 1000 square feet
of surface once in the fall' and
once in the spring. Better still
make an application of 10 pounds
to the 1000 square feet at inter
vals of . two months during - the
growing season. ' Be -sure to ' Vet
down the lawn Immediately after
spreading this type of fertiliser.
Soak it in well, otherwise some
burn - may, appear. Unless .you
used too; much this burned con
dition will disappear again in a
short " while." I "I .. v."'. c "
Sheep guano: Is . a good source
of plant food but it Is slower in
action than the chemicals and in
comparison with, the available ni
trates is more expensive. It. does
have the advantage "of adding
some 'humus material, because it
Is an organic fertilizer, . Lawns
that are high In. humus react bet
ter to the use of chemicals than
do those deficient in humus.
- Almost , never . put ' lime on a
lawn, el they . ih preparation or
later.' Lime burns up to some ex
tent the humus, makes a soil alk
aline which should be somewhat
acid for : the; majority, of , good
lawn- grasses. It promotes the
growth of weeds and moss thrives
on a lime sweetened soiL Land;
plaster Is of no value except for
the small amount of sulphur it
will add to the soil. These conclu
sions have been reached after
much research and are practiced
by 1 prominent 7 landscape archi
tects and agronomists. --
Weeds Are Cone
Of Many Lawns '
Weeds are the curse of a great
many lawns. , There are ways of
eliminating weeds other than by
the time old method of back
breaking digging.' Some, of the
broad leaved weeds such as plan
tain,' daisies,' chick weed and the
like will be rendered helpless by
an application of sulphate of am
monia. A strong solution, even as
much as 20 ounces to the gallon,
is used in severe cases.: One pound
to two and one half, gallons Is
safer for most 'purposes. For the
best results .this ' should be spray
ed on with some force. A small
pressure sprayer is a good means
of application. This material ! a
high nitrate fertiliser and will
burn the grass under , these dilu
tions but will not injure the
crowns and .as soon as .new
growth . appears the brown burn
ed, grass will become green again.
' This same application Is also
very effective against moss. Bake
the moss areas well first, then ap
ply the sulphate, of ammonia. If
the sulphate is put on in the crys
tal form it should be well soaked
in with water. -After
