Gardeners Should Get Seeds Now Ames--Iowa victory gardeners, vho · are planning "bigger arid »tter than ever" food harvests in 1944, should order their seed now. True, the ground isn't ready lor working yet, but being prepared to plant at the.proper time is partial insurance of good gardening results. Waiting until the March pre- planting rush to order seed may delay in its arrival until after t's needed. Labor shortages In :he garden seed business make 1 almost imperative that orders x placed early this year. John Nicholson, an lowan who represents the American seed trade commission, emphasized t h a t idea at the annual Iowa victory garden conference held recently in Des Moines. Nicholson said supplies of common garden seeds are ample for the demand. But prices, governed by ceilings, are up slightly. There are shortages of certain kinds of seed not so generally grown. Seed companies probably have sufficient labor so that they can handle many more orders in January and February than they, have been accustomed to~receiving during those months. Few companies, if any, have sufficient labor this year to handle quickly a flood of orders such as usually comes during,March. It is important, .to order-seeds during February.
