vegetable gardens will undoubtedly be a big factor in holding the line against high food cost. 
Past experience has proved to thousands of families that it is possible to have more and fresher 
green vegetables at less cost when a home garden is planted and tended through the season. 
Those who had Victory gardens during the war and afterward have learned that even a small 
plot of ground can produce an amazing quantity. Because of the enormous amount of seed sent 
abroad by the Government, certain kinds of seed are in short supply this year. We therefore 


repeat our advice to order at once, so as not to be disappointed. - 

Our Perfection Seeds are new. tested strains from the best American and British SOUIcES. 
We pledge you our fullest codperation in filling your order promptly the same day it is received 
if cash accompanies it. ORDER EARLY to be sure of getting the varieties you prefer.

Hunt’s Perfection Vegetable Seeds 


All seeds sent prepaid to any address for cash with order 


In spite of the fact that the commercial gardener can usually supply most vegetables during the 
summer at less than what it costs the consumer in time and labor to raise them himself, market vege- 
tables, no matter how expeditiously and scientifically marketed, are never as good as those grown in 
the home-garden. 


Besides, there is always the added spice of triumphant achievement in producing the vegetables for 
family use from the home plot. 


If there is space, such crops as mature underground—potatoes, turnips, parsnips, carrots, and so 
on—can be grown cheaply in quantity, and may be stored in the cellar in autumn and kept until 
wanted for use. Garden space and garden enthusiasm are all that are needed to produce greate1 
quantities of those staple things of better quality. 


Please order your seeds early. The use of our special order form will assist us, and expedite delivery.

HUNT'S GARDEN BEANS 


Bobne 


Beans, particularly the bush varieties, are one of 
the most satisfactory vegetables to grow. They 
adapt themselves to practically any condition of 
soil, succeeding particularly well in the virgin soil of 
newly made gardens. Successive sowings should be 
made throughout the season. Those not wanted for 
immediate use may be canned or allowed to ripen 
and dry for winter use. Black Valentine Stringless, 
Masterpiece, and Golden Wax carry our highest 
recommendations. 


Sow about May 1, in drills 2 inches deep; and 114 
to 2 feet apart. Drop the Beans 3 inches apart, and 
cover not more than 2 inches. Sow every two weeks,

Alphabetical List of Flower Seeds 


Valuable Cultural Hints 


Due to continuous heavy rains at time of 
harvesting, several varieties of Flower Seeds 
are short in supply, and unless instructions to the 
contrary are given, the nearest substitute will 
be sent. 


When sowing seeds in pots, pans, or trays, use a 
compost of sweet top soil, sand, and humus, or clean 
leaf-mold. Some growers substitute peat-moss for 
the humus, but I prefer the latter. No manure of 
any kind is required, and the mechanical condition 
should be such that if a handful ts squeezed together, 
when just pleasantly moist, it falls apart readily 
upon the hand being opened. If the particles cling 
tenaciously together, it requires the addition of more 
humus and sand. The soil should be passed through 
a sieve having a half-inch mesh. Fill the pots or flats 
to within half an inch of the top with this compost 
and press it moderately and uniformly firm, making 
the surface perfectly level. For very fine "seeds, a 
surfacing layer of the same soil passed through a 
quarter-inch sieve will be required. Now water with 
a fine spray so that the whole body of soilis satu- 
rated. It will be found an excellent preventative of 
damping-off and other fungoid troubles if Semesan 
is used (normal strength) for this purpose. Allow to 
drain for an hour or so and then sow the seed. Sow 
thinly and barely cover with soil shaken through a 
piece of wire screening. Large seeds, as Lupins and 
Sweet Peas, should be covered to a depth of 1 inch, 
and minute seeds, as Lobelia, Begonias, etc., will not 
require covering. Place a piece of glass and a sheet 
of brown paper over each pot or flat and keep in a 
temperature of 60 degrees. Examine each morning, 
and as soon as germination Is evident, remove the 
coverings and gradually expose the plants to full 
light. Water with care, never allowing the plants to 
suffer either for want of water or by being water- 
logged. When water is required, stand the seed-pot 
in a pail and allow the moisture to rise from below. 


When preparing a seed-bed in a frame, the soil 
should possess the qualities already described. Sand 
and humus may be freely used. The surface must be 
raked fine and level and the seed sown either broad- 
cast or in shallow drills, 3 to 4 inches apart. Cover 


the seed to its own depth, or slightly more, for sum- 
mer sowings. Press lightly with a flat piece of board 
and water well with a very fine spray. Keep the sash 
and shading material on until the shoots can be just 
discerned breaking through the surface, then remove 
the shading and admit ventilation on all favorable 
occasions. The ground where seed is to be sown in 
the open should be brought to a state of pulveriza- 
tion and the surface raked fine. So far as possible, 
sow either immediately before or after rains, so that 
the seed is insured sufficient moisture for germina- 
tion and early growth. Annuals may be sown where 
they are to flower, the young plants afterward being 
vigorously thinned out. Perennials are best sown in 
rows and later transplanted. 

Seedlings sown in pots and frames will require 
transplanting when the second pair of leaves develop. 
For many things, flats 3 to 4 inches deep are sult- 
able, using a compost similar to that advised for 
seed-sowing but in a little coarser state, or they may 
be transplanted to beds in frames. Allow 2 inches 
each way for this first move. Perennials and bien- 
nial seedlings will be transplanted into frames or in 
rows in the open ground allowing ample space for 
development. 

Hardy annuals may be sown when the trees are 
bursting imto leaf, and in some cases in the fall. 

Half-hardy annuals may be sown so that sizable 
plants are available for planting out when danger of 
frost has passed, and later for succession. Hardy 
biennials are best sown in June or July and hardy 
perennials from June to September. Greenhouse 
plants are sown at various times according to re- 
quirements, and in this connection it may be men- 
tioned that many hardy annuals make excellent 
greenhouse plants if sown in September or in early 
spring. When seeds fail to germinate, my experience 
is that the fault is invariably with the person respon- 
sible for the sowing and after-care. No reputable 
seed-house disseminates untested seed. The most 
frequent causes of failure are too deep sowing and 
permitting the soil to become excessively dry or the 
reverse while germination Is taking place. Either of 
these conditions 1s fatal to success.

SWEET PEAS 


The Twentieth-Century Method of Growing Sweet Peas 


For Early Blooms. Place three seeds in a small 
pot of soil in the house about March 1. If all three 
seeds germinate, pull out the two weakest plants and 
retain the strongest. As soon as the second set of 
leaves has formed, plunge the young plants, with the 
pots, in a coldframe protected by sash, where they 
can be hardened off. Lift the sash during the sunny 
hours of the day and water carefully. Set the plants 
out in the open about April 15, and space them 6 
inches apart in the row. 


General Culture 
Four ounces of seed will sow a single row of 100 feet 


The ground where Sweet Peas are to be grown 
should be well prepared—if possible, the fall previ- 
ous. Deep spading or plowing is very essential, for 


the roots love to penetrate into the cooler part of the 
soil. Manure placed at a considerable depth will 
help to draw the roots downward. Sweet Peas love 
sun, therefore they should always be planted where 
they are exposed to the sun all day. 


Sow Seeds Early. Sweet Peas produce their 
strongest roots during the cool, moist months of 
spring, so planting should take place as soon as the 
land can be worked. A little frost will do no harm to 
Sweet Peas. After the soil has been carefully 
smoothed and raked, draw a line for a straight row 
and sow three seeds every 6 inches in the row. Do 
not cover the seed with more than % inch of soil, and 
if more than one plant should appear in each spot, 
carefully destroy all but one specimen so that one 
plant shows every 6 inches in the row.

GLADIOLUS 


Culture. Gladiolus will succeed in all kinds of 
soil, provided the location is a sunny one. Before 
spading or plowing, manure the ground thoroughly, 
as Gladiolus like rich ground. 

Time of Planting. The bulbs can be planted 
just as soon as the frost is out of the ground and the 
beds are properly prepared. In the vicinity of New 
York this may be early in April. If the flowers are 
wanted in successive crops, it is best to make weekly 
plantings, and, if planted as late as June 30, the 
flowers will appear before frost-time. 

Feeding. Gladiolus are gross feeders, and we find 
pulverized sheep-manure is the most result- produc- 
ing food. Apply it between the rows after the foliage 
has made a good start, and repeat the application 


every two weeks until the buds show. From that 
time on, liquid sheep-manure, applied every other 
day, produces splendid results. 


Watering. Continued moisture Is just as essen- 
tial for the successful growing of these flowers as 
food, and we wish to impress our readers with the 
fact that drought is most detrimental to their health. 


Cultivation. It is a well-established fact that 
every plant benefits by constant cultivation, and if 
we were asked what part of the culture Is the most 
Important we should always say cultivation. The 
soil around the plants should always be open. 


Depth and Distance to Plant. Our recommen- 
dation is to plant 4 inches deep and 4 inches apart.

GARDEN LILIES 


Since the beginning of gardens, Lilies have been 
prized among the choicest plants. The family is so

may be chosen for any situation, and to accommo- 
date any mood of the gardener. 


Auratum (The Golden-banded Lily). One of the 
stateliest of all the hardy Lilies; grows 3 to 6 feet 
high and bears twenty or more large and fragrant 
flowers 8 to 10 inches in diameter. Flowers white,

GROWING GOOD ROSES 


The beds ought not be more than 4 feet wide, and 
the soil should be rich. Avoid making the ground 
loose or spongy. The stiffer and harder the soil in 
the lower layers of the bed, the better Roses grow. 
Old sods, decayed cow-manure, bone meal, and 
commercial dried sheep manure are good fertilizers. 
Keep the surface of the Rose-beds well cultivated. 

Plant Hybrid Tea Roses 114 feet apart. More 
vigorous types need more space. Set the “bud” or 
‘“*sraft’’ at least 1 inch beneath the surface. Spread 








out the fine roots carefully and tamp the soil firmly 
about them. It is well to tread the soil hard about 
the roots. Loose planting is fatal. ; 

Dormant Roses should be pruned in the spring. 
Remove weak and dead wood, and shorten the good 
canes to 6inches. Ramblers of the Dorothy Perkins 
type should have the old canes cut out at the base 
as soon as they are through blooming. Other Climb- 
ers require little pruning; simply remove dead wood 
and an occasional old cane as new ones appear.
