Remember that the common garden snail has 14,175 teeth! Wet weather helps pests' growth progress; gardeners are not active then, but snails and slugs are. Their presence is noted by the thin, siiwr "nac'is"' iK. when moving around. It also is possible to see them early in the morning before the sun appears to drive them under cover. , The easiest way to control them is by means of bug type metalde- hyde pellets which can be scattered, a handful at a time, among the night raiders' favorite haunts. BUG-GETA pellets are most effective when the area is hosed down lightly after they've been spread. For Maximum Blooming Snapdragon plants can be made to produce many more flowers by two sallies with the shears. First, when the center spike is nicely in bloom go right down the row and cut every one of them for bouquets. This encourages the side branches to produce longer and better spikes themselves. Then, when these side branches have bloomed cut thm off, too. close to the base of the plant. Prunefl back this way early types like Mardi Gras will then come, into bloom a second time in the late fall. SHOP ADDRESS: 721 East Stitt St. P.O. Box 17, Rtdlands, Calif.

The California Association of Nurserymen will bet that eight out of ten gar deners can—to cover a blank wall soften a harsh line on a fence, or to provide overhead shade in hot weather. But once the point is made and the gardener admits' his need, what vine is best? .Does he want an evergreen? A vine that supports itself? One that requires guidance? One for shade or sun or what? ThMe may seem simple points, but the success of your vine depends on proper selection. You can't make a twining vine cling to a concrete or brick wall: nor can you make a Clematis thrive against a hot south wall. With that in mind, let's look at situations. You have a concrete or brick wall you want to cover. Choose one of the clinging vines that attach themselves one way or another to the surface. Boston Ivy or the common Ivies are suitable. So are Creeping Fig and Virginia Creeper. You want to cover a trellis or pergola for summer shade. Choose a Wisteria or Grape for the job Inexpensive, practical way to protect your car from weather! Also ideal for patios, poo/side cabmtt, boat coven, etc Rain, snow, hail, heat and sun — they can all cause costly automobile damage.

Colfon PY M849 or 2-4978 if you want to let in sun during winter. Or if an evergreen is desired, try Bougainvillea or Honey suckle. Silver Lace vine is an excellent choice, but you don't always know from year to year whether it will be really decidu ous or almost evergreen in mild winter areas. Small matter to those who know it and grow it. For softening the line of a fence or the overhang of a roof, the graceful and evergreen Armandi Clematis is unsurpassed. It needs to be*goitiMharitb-:stri&g?6r cord And for lattice work—to cover a blank wall—try Giant Burmese Honeysuckle or maybe the striking Blood Red Trumpet Vine. There are actually many good vines for similar situations and Fuchsias Need Heavy Pruning That fuchsia you forgot to prune last month should have its comeuppance now. You can be ruthless. Fuchsias respond well to heav> pruning. In fact, they demand it for best results, since the blooms come on new wood. Hanging fuchsias can be c u back to the edge of the container. Fertilize immediately after pruning. choice is often difficult. But with this in mind, there is no excuse at all for choosing the wrong vine for the need you want it to fill Use Of Peat Moss Increasing On Long Island, approximately 1,000,000 bales of p:at moss are used for soil conditioning, planting and mulching each year. In all of California, where use of peat moss is steadily increasing, only 700,000 bales are used each year. Redlands Daily Facts Friday, Mar. 20, 1959 - 13 Begonia Tubers Still High On Planting List Begonia tubers are still high on the planting list in spring. Tubers planted earlier to sprout in flats of peat can be transplanted to pots or to the ground when top growth is about three inches high. For pots, make sure the drain hole is covered with a broken piece of pot or a rock. Use a porous soil with leaf mold, peat and sand added (or combinations of these'. Keep plants watered, but don't fertilize until they are established. Watch Asters For Hoppers Seedsmen have been able t c breed a certain degree of resis­ tance to wilt in modern aster strains, but the disease called yellows remains the number one aster enemy. If your aster foliage turned yellow and the plants became stunted and died before blooming last year this disease was your problem. Yellows can't be cured after the plant has become diseased, but it can be prevented. The virus is carried exclusively by leal hoppers. If you initiate an insect killing program in your entire garden area with DDT or dicldrin sprays at the time the seedlings appear and keep it up at weekly inter­ vals during the summer you can prevent infection of the plants.
