Most Plants iect to Attack Sub'n Aphid Experienced gardeners can recognize when a plant Is not growing as It should, and needs an extr* meal. But If the, weakness Is due lo other causes, extra feeding will not help. It will not correct poor drainage, or cure disease, and should not be used when Ihe plants have bloomed and want to rest, as do most of the spring perennials, when summer comes. Most plants are subject to attack by large numbers of small sucking bugs known a aphids or plant lice Outbreaks of these insects occur most often In the spring, although Injury may take place at any season, according to Mrs. Gerlrude ^K Holman, home demonstration ^igent. The injury caused by these Insects Is largely from sucking plant juices, Mrs. Holman explained, and may be severe enough to kill stands. Other injury may 1 be caused by covering the plants with partly digested sap, called honey dew, upon which sooty molds grow. Among the plants, since this might do more flower show will help you cut Inrgcr larm than the feeding would do i and more brllllanlly colored fiow- ;ood. One way is to spread the' ers for exhibition, ilaut food on the surface between I Lhe rows after cultivating, and rake ' it into the soil, then wash It In. Another way. which has shown Impressive results in New Jersey experiments, Is to stir the plant food In waiter, and ponr the water on the ground near the plants. Liquid Food Recommended During hot, dry weather, dry plant food may be inert in the soil, until water Is supplied to dissolve it. By using liquid plant food the need for Irrigation Is lessened, and immediate results are obtained. Dr. V. A. Ttedjens, who is an advocate of liquid plant food, gives the following Instructions for preparing it. Place a complete dry plant food in a cloth bag and hang It in a barrel or bucket of water overnight. The material that remains In the bag may be spread online soil surface, but tiie soluble elements in the mixture will remain In the water. The quantities recommended are for standard dry mixtures, and do not apply to high analysis mixtures, or those especially pre- i«*r wnos *WAT WITH ATLAC1DE CHIO«ATI aphids familiar to Norlh Mississippi County gardeners are the melon aphlri, cabbage aphid, nasturtium aphid and the spinach aphid. The aphids may be controlled in this county by spraying with contact insecticide. Nicotine in the form of nicotine sulfate, containing 4D per cent nicotine, Is the Insecticide usually recommended. The dilution ordlarlly used Is one part Insecticide In 800 parts of water, or one pint in 100 gallons. Two pounds of soap should be added to each 100 gallons of spray mixture to Improve spreading qualities. Small quantities may be made up with one teaspoonful of nicotine aulfate and one tablespoon of soap chips to a gallon of water. Rotenone may be used as a dust, Mrs. Hollman added. An insecticide containing not less than three- fourths of one per cent of rotenone Is recommended. Cattle grub dust is considered an excellent rotenone dust for aphids. The aphids must be hit in order to kill . them. Since aphids are often on the under sides of leaves or on the growing points, special ^.care in spraying or dusting Is ncc- 5*ss»ry If a satisfactory kill is to be obtained. pared for use In solution. For side dressing growing crops, use a cupful of plant food to a quart of xvater. or a pound (pint) to a gallon. For row crops pour a quart of the liquid to each three feet of row.
