MATERIAL ARE ADVISA5LE. Dahlias rank with gladiolus as the most popular plant grown from tender tubers, corms, etc. They are particularly desirable In the perennial border, where they mny be used In any location calling for tall uj right plants. Plant dahlias at any time after the soil has become warm up to July first. Do not make tlie mis- take of placing dahlias too close together. They make heavy de- plant food. They will not thrive in shade. Preferably place them about four feet apart. Prepare the soil to a depth of at least ten inches. Apply a complete I plant food at the rate of I'our i pounds per hundred square feet and work It into the soil. It .S best If part of the plant food is worked Into the soil that is placed around the tuber. Set the tubers about 0 Inches deep. Cultivate often until Ihe buds appear, to maintain a good mulch. After the buds appear, give only very shallow and light cultiva- tion, or the new tubers will be injured. To secure best blooms, It is ad- visable to permit only the most hmx'y shoot to remain, and when this Is three to four Joints above the ground, pinch out the top, which causes the plant to branch out. Leave the end bud on each branch, but remove the side buds that appear at each set of leaves. Six to eight weeks after plant- ing apply plant food about the plants nt the rate of four pounds per hundred square feet. 'Dig dulilia tubers before the soil freezes. Clean them well and store in shallow boxes of sand in a cool place where they will not freei'.c. Entirely distinct In type nnd size are the comparatively small Colt- ness nnd Unwin dahlias.
