« Friday, March 10, 1941 MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE Garden Club Hears Talk by Members Discussions on the growing of amaryllis and sweetpeas were conducted at the meeting of the Mason City Garden club Thursday evening at the Y. M. C. A. Mrs. C. L. Marston who talked on amaryllis pointed out that the amaryllis grown in this part of the country is not the true amaryllis which is a native of South Africa. She said that when she was growing up, anyone who had green fingers had 3 plants in which she took pride, the old fashioned oleander, the white day lily and the amaryllis. Mrs-. Marston said that there are 60 or 70 varieties oE the amaryllis and that they have many cousins, including the narcissus, the snowdrop and the clematis. The speaker advised growing the amaryllis in a small pot, never disturbing its roots and never planting il deeply. L. S. Sanders in discussing svveetpea growing said that originally it was a small purple flower, but had been developed until it is a beautiful, delicate fragrant bloom in many colors. Mr. Sanders stressed the need of getting the seed in early so that the flower may reach its height before the hot weather. He advised either preparing a sect bed in the fall so that the seed may be planted by the last week of March or start them in the house 'in mid-February. The sweetpeas must have support a soon as they start running ten drils he said and emphasized tha any sweetpea bed can be ruined by lack of picking. A general discussion period will M. C. Lawson in charge followec Mrs. Charles Grippen presidei during the business session. Encampment Women Conduct Meeting Encampment auxiliary m e Thursday in I. O. O. F. hall. Mrs O. C.
