Because so many crops are not hardy, to cannot be planted in the Rarden until danger of frost is over in the spring, the key dale for spring gardening is Hie average dale o( the last killing frost. Every outdoor Harden task must be timed with reference lo date. Of course It it never definite; seldom l« it the urn* for two yearn running. Gardeners mint alway> take risks on the weather; but tins risk can be reduced if operations cnch spring are based upon (he experience of the pasl. And Ihe experience of n.arly 100 years with respect lo the last killing frost in spring, Is embodied in the U. S. weather bureau niap which accompanies this article. The date shown on the map for «ach of the various zones is the flat* after wbich Hie chances are 10 to 1 «gainst a killing frost. This map may surprise you. Note that only at the tip of Florida and the louthern Caliiornia coast are plants Arid only in Florida. Texas and the southern half of California, can lender crops be planted salcly before April 1. Probably the best guidance you can have, as lo tlic frost proot date in your own locality, is the advice nf neighbor gardeners. In most localities you will find there is a generally accepted dale for setting out tender plants. This may vary for different plant:. Remember even plants known to bc hardv when mature, pre often injured by frost in their infancy, especially when they have been started under protection from the cold. Of course some years you may win with a long-shot and get * crop from an onrly planting of a lender crop because of an exceptionally warm spring. If you want to figure the odds aRniilsl (his kind of chance Inking, you may estimate that the risk of losing lender plants is exactly doubled, when Oiey are set out two weeks before the frosl-proot date. There is nothing to be sained, m6reover, by taking this risk willi plants which have been started indoors, since they may be seriously injured by a hard frost which docs not kill them, and always do best when they continue growing without a check.

The studies were carried out at the Main Experiment Station In Fayettevllle, and at the four branch stations located In Independence J-ee, Arkansas, and Hemnste-irl counties. Soil and'weather 'ronriI] t ons varied at the different «ta- ions but good returns were obtained Irom the added nitrogen under practically a! | conditions Apparently the source of tlie'nl troRcn and the date It Is added make little difference. In the ex lierimcnts equal amounts of nU ro KC" In the form of sodium nitrate ammonium nitrate, and ammonium sulphate gave about equal returns Results were also about the same whrn Ihe nitrogen was added at ahv time hi Die early Spring before the plants began to joint.
