With Santa just around the corner, this is almost always a dtf- Jcult month for the gardener. Christmas shopping, gift wrap- >ing and holiday parties, plus the act that we often have uncom- brtable weather at this time, all add up to a minimum of time or our outdoor activities. However, the avid gardener will always find time to put his garden properly asleep. Pruning, plant- ng, weeding and cultivation should go on this month as during he other 11. Decide now just what roses you would like to add to your plot this month. December and January aj-e the best months of alJ lor planting them. The old saying "you always get what you pay ter" holds true in the matter of rose bushes. Unpatented varieties (often temptingly advertised in magazines and periodicals) are much more inexpensive. But these will nol >roduce (he choice, luscious >Iooms, regardless of the amount of care you give them, that the patented verities will reward you with. Always buy choice plants and you will be much more satisfied with your rose spring. Carefully select and prepare the ilot for your rose bushes. Ignore he "full sun" admonition of most gardening magazines, and select a spot that gets only half a days sun for their home. Your plants will grow vigorously and bloom more profusely in partial sun than they will in our scorching Gulf Coast teat. I prefer a location on the vest side of the house, so the mshes never go to sleep wet. This discourages mildew on your plant. The rose garden should always lave excellent drainage. Whereas roses never grow in the desert, and require considerable mois- ure, they do not like to stand vith wet feet. Build the area up inches higher thrui the surrounding area so raimaii wiii lave, no trouble in draining off. Remember too that roses like an acid soil. . . .a pH of 5.5 to 7.0 makes them happy. Incorporate several inches of well rotted eaf mold into the soil, and plan o add aluminum sulphate later f necessary, Then too, we never mulch our rose bushes here in'the winter. .. only in the summer, to keep Ihelr delicate roots cool. Be careful to plant the bushcj the same depth as they were irbwn, usually a couple of Inches >elow the graft. The aristocratic camellia likes o be planted during December •Jso. Every gardener needs to ackle the challenge of the camel ia. They are most nearly dormant now, as their buds begin, to show color, and-although one of the most expensive of foe garden • ST.

Camellias simply will not tolerate alkaline soil, full sun or bad drainage. Any one of these three circumstances will cause a certain and untimely death for this plant. Acidify your soil to 4.0 to 6.0 to satisfy the camellia. . . .plant in shade or filtered sunlight, "mound up" the soil at its base, and mulch with pine needles. The Sarah Frost, a rosy-red, is one of the more amicable varieties. Never, never let the soil become dry about your camellias, and keep a wary eye for'the various scales they are bothered with, and appearance of white fly. At the first indication of either of these diseases, consult at once with either your nurseryman or agricultural agent. True, camellias must be pampered, but you will be so glad you bought one! Do you have many gardening friends? If so, bear their hobby In mind when making out your Yuletide shopping list. There are many and various items to gladden the heart of any gardener. Soil testing kits, small hand tools, gardening books, or some longed for plant. Then too, there are gay packages of many bulbs on the market, and a canned or burlap- ped shrub would make any gardener happy!
