This material can be put into the planting Hole when you set out a Plant or scattered around plants. It will not Burn the roots of even the. Tender est plants and slowly releases nutrition at Safe Levels for a Long time. One last new material is also a fertilizer. This looks like a charcoal briquet. Exactly like. It actually contains particles of charcoal impregnated with fertilizer. It works like a Charm in hanging baskets and contain ers that need a lot of water ing because it does t Leach out.

Not everyone needs All these new fertilizers but each one fits a particular need and supplies a simple answer to a complicated feeding problem. If fertilizing your plants has been a problem consult your local nurseryman. You May find that Progress in fertilizers has finally caught up to your needs. By Dorothy Bayliss yellow glory is How confucius wrote of the chrysanthemum that has unquestionably been cultivated in China More than years. And instead of waning in favor the chrysanthemum today is the dominant Flower of autumn gardens. This yellow glory was prob ably chrysanthemum incl cum a Small yellow Daisy. This and chrysanthemum mor Follum a Rosy Pink to Lilac Daisy like Blossom Are noted for being successfully used in the chrysanthemums development. We but wonder How two such nondescript produced the magnificent chrysanthemums of today. There is no positive information according to printed information on the subject that the chinese were aware of hybridization As a science but they Are credited with the initial remodelling of the Plant from Weed to Flower. The japanese added diverse types and the French were first to recognize the mums possibilities for european Gar Dens. England did its share in modernizing the Flower but the United states can claim More Over All chrysanthemum improvements in fewer years than any other nation and the end is Only remotely in sight. Fall s finest perennial is without doubt the chrysanthemum. It used to be said they Herald the arrival of cooler weather and Shorter Days but by new techniques they can be brought into Bloom at any season of the year now. They Are even a springtime pot Plant but for Many they they will always be Flowers of autumn. The types of the plants and Flowers to be chosen for a chrysanthemum planting Are varied enough to fulfil the de sires of the most demanding Gardener. If the Amateur Gardener does t realize this he should take time for a leisurely stroll through the Chrysanthe mum Garden at Lakeside Park in Oakland. There now Are plants of More than 550 varieties Blooming in a great Floral mosaic. Every Hue known to hybridizes Are rep resented. A Good one third of them in spectacular Cas Cades. This fall grandeur in the Garden can be come by in two ways. Either by making cuttings or divisions in May or june or by buying Blooming or ready to Bloom plants now.
