YOUR GARDEN By Isabelle R. Young, F.R.H.S. PLANT PROTECTION is the time, if you have not already done so, to clean up the garden. Many peo- ple lose interest and neglect their yard once the frost has. 1 cut down their favorite flowers, etc. Plants that are finished should be cleared away as any debris left laying around until spring provides ideal hiding places for overwintering pests and diseases. One important job is the win- ter protection of plants. When Jack frost has left you with dead stalks and brown foliage in beds and borders, they are ready to be cut down. Cut them down to about six inches above the ground and let any leaves This pre freezing watering that have mulch the fallen plants. remain to The short stalks are easily cleaned up in the spring and in the meantime they will help to hold the leaves and also the snow. How- ever, some of the perennials may still have green foliage and are still growing and so, if we have a good let the plants take full advantage of the good weather. Cut these plants back after a real killing frost has struck and mulch when the ground is frozen. Two or three inches 'of straw is good for this purpose and helps to keep the plants dormant longer in the spring. Remov; this cov- ering gradually in tiie spring, which is beneficial to the plants with persistent foliage that pre- fers to be exposed to the light gradually. Although the gladio- lus foliage has been nipped to some extent, the blubs may be left in the ground to ripen as long as possible, taking them, in before it gets too cold. Dah- lia roots should be lifted soon for if we have a warm spell during the fall they will soon frozen down. It is this second growth which saps the life of the tuber.1 All trees and bushes should dous.

This slows down growth and after the first frost the sap starts on its return to the base. Around the beginning of October the trees, etc. should be watered quite heavily, for generally, the weather is fairly cool at this time "and new growth will not take place. Continue watering at frequent intervals until freeze-up. If, however, there should be a prolonged warm spell, water only sufficiently to keep the'plant from suffering. Do not allow it to be frozen in without an adequate supply of moisture. Before winter sets in it a good idea to spray trees and shrubs, especially fruit and roses, with a dormant spray, wetting thoroughly, in- cluding the ground under the plants. Fall is the best time to dig your garden and apply manure, which can be fresh at this time. When it is dug in now it will have rotted down sufficiently by spring so it will not cause harm to plants when they are set out or growing from seed. A garden is much better dug in the fall and left rough over the winter. The action of water and frost on the soil is bene- ficial and it will be much easier to work with in the spring.
