For these gardens, try Winter Banana, Yellow Bellflower, Pettingill and, possibly, Beverly Hills. Check with your nurseryman; he may have better recommendations based upon local experience. One large Southland nursery advises planting two or more kinds of apples near each other for cross pollination. Fruit trees do better in soil areas than in lawns! It's easier to water, fertilize, and mulch them. For inland areas, plant the above as well as Yellow Delicious, Red Gravensteln, Val- morc and Delicious. Regardless, whether you plant apples, peaches, plums, pears, or any other deciduous f r u i t trees, be sure to plant trees same depth they grew when in the wholesale growers' field. YOU'LL N O T I C E that there's a difference in the color mark on the tree trunk. That's your guide line for depth planting. Mix some organic humus material into Tips on Gardening GARDEN TIPS for the week . . . An interesting pot plant but one that is not very well known is the pink calla. Bulbs are now available. They are quite small compared to either yellow or white calla bulbs but will grow just as quickly. Plant protectors are now available for the home gardener in a special package. These are the same protectors used by commercial growers. They allow sunlight to penetrate but keep out cold, frost, bugs and rain. The protectors also aid in preserving a mulch on the soil surface. Dry weather, even though it occurs in winter, calls for watering. Just because the temperature drops is no reason for discontinuing your watering program. Bare lawn areas may be re- seeded now. It is advisable to sow grass seeds before the a p p r o a c h of hot weather. High temperatures make it difficult to keep the seed bed uniformly moist and thus seedlings die rapidly during the summer. Begonia Society Preparation of flowers for show purposes will be the subject of a meeting of the P a r e n t Chapter, American Begonia Society, at Linden Hall, 208 Linden Ave., Tuesday evening. A jitney potluck supper will be served at 6:30 p.m. Visitors are welcome. the soil. If soil is light and sandy, mix two parts of moistened peat moss, compost soil, or an already prepared organic .humus spread material with three parts of soil. For heavier soil, mix one part of humus material and two parts of soil. Tree roots should be spread out in natural position they were accustomed lo grow. Firm soil well. Keep soil moist, also sprinkle the bare branches, until new growth appears. Then, water as soil dries. Mature fruit trees need attention, right now--pruning and clean-up spraying if they weren't sprayed in December. Last year's growth on peach trees and nectarines usually is cut back one-half to two- thirds. Apricots should be headed back. Figs that bear fruit on same year growth are cut back within two or three nodes of where they grew out from previous year. APPLES PRODUCE fruit on short thick spurs, and continue bearing fruit for several years. Plums b'ear fruit on short spurs. When pruning them, cut back willowy whip- like branches, but don't cut off the spurs which bear the fruit. Use a spray that contains Apples can be grown in the home garden, but be sure to choose kind suited to area. an oil emulsion to control over-wintering pests and a fungus control ingredient. Spray thoroughly, so that tree branches are dripping wet w h e n finished. Soil should be moist before spraying is begun and the soil from tree trunk outward should also be sprayed.
