Standard Tested Vegetable Seeds 


SPECIAL NOTICE. We give no warranty, express or implied, as to the productive- 
ness of any seeds, bulbs or plants we sell and we will not be in any way responsible for the

SEED TREATMENT. All of our vegetable seed (except beets, chard, and onions) 
have been treated with Spergon. Spergon contains no mercury or copper and is non-injurious. 
Active Ingredient is 98% Tetrachloropara benzoquinone. It prevents seed decay and 
“damping-off”’. Stimulates growth. It is compatible with Legume Bacteria. 

ASPARAGUS—Sow the seed thinly in rows 1 foot 
apart in April or May and keep down weeds; thin 
seedlings to 3 or 4 inches apart. Roots should be set 
out in spring in rich sandy loam, dug 18 inches deep, 
work in plenty of well rotted manure. Every fall a 
good dressing of coarse manure and our Garden Fer- 
tilizer should be applied after tops are cut and in the 
spring forked in. Never cut closely.

ant asparagus—rich, dark green color, a marked 1m-

apart in the row, and let grow until wanted to plant out. Keep well wet down in dry 
weather. Set out in July, 6 to 8 inches apart, (press soil firmly against roots), in single 
row in shallow trenches, having previously worked a good quantity of well rotted manure 
in bottom of trench. It is well to work thoroughly into the soi! under and around the

A Mushroom Cellar Bed 

Mushrooms are more easily cultivated than many people imagine and may be grown in any room or cellar 
where the temperature can be maintained at from 50 to 65 degrees. For the beds use a mixture of three parts 
horse droppings and one part good fresh loam. Before being placed in the bed, let the manure be put in some 
dry place to sweeten, mixing it thoroughly and turning it three or four times, when the loam may be added. 
Upon a dry firm bottom, make the bed by spreading a thin layer of the prepared mixture, pounding it firm, 
and continue this, till the bed is twelve inches thick. Leave it thus for about a week, or until the temperature 
has subsided to 85 degrees. Then make holes about ten inches apart, and put in each a piece of spawn about the 
size of an egg. Press the spawn firmly into the compost about two inches, leaving the top uncovered to allow 
the excess of heat and moisture to pass off without injury to the germs. After ten days, fill the holes and cover 
the whole bed with two inches of fresh loam, and over this place a few inches of straw. If the temperature 
is right, mushrooms will appear in six or eight weeks from the time of spawning. The bed will continue bearing 
from four to six weeks. If the surface of the bed becomes dry at any time, it should be moistened freely with 
water at.a temperature of 90 to 100 degrees. 

Our stock of spawn is replaced a number of times during the season and is giving excellent results.

For peas, light dry soil is best. Sow as early as ground can be worked, and again every 
ten days for succession. Peas may be sown as late as August 15th. Medium and late peas 
must be planted early. Early peas may be planted early or late, and the extra early very 
late. Sow in single or double rows, according to variety, and about an inch apart in the row. 
Hoe often, keep ground clean and fine. Most dwarf peas will bear better if bushed enough to 
keep them from the ground. If the pea louse attacks the vines, spray every day with tobacco 
water of the same temperature as the atmosphere, using force.
