r-riday. January ivbl Even Though It Is Wet» Gardeners Urged To Plant Trees Now By MOLLY BOWERS Although many Baytonians may be disgruntled with all the wet weather we have been having lately, there is one consolation- it'* a great time to plant trees! But quite a bit of planning j should precede this horticultural activity. In fact, design is of the utmost importance when land- Reaping your home. A scaled drawing of your lawn and house should include the existing landscape of all particulars to be retained. On this diagram, the potential gardener should torsi inark off suitable areas for the larger shade trees. • Then, when adequate space for their development lias been allotted, smaller flowering recs should be drawn off. Area for shrubs should be specified next with perennial and annual flowers shaded in last on the scale. ... When selecting the type of '.Woody plants for your lot, their '..tull-grown size should be consid- '<• ered as well as blooming time and 'bloom color. PUT Ti I.VTO PRACTICE .. Up until this point, all the work has been on paper. Next step is to buy the trees and them in their respe Young trees may be purchased in three forms — balled iii burlap, bare-rooted or in containers. Today, most bare-rooted trees are kept in containers. Those working with plants for s'the first time would be wise to " buy trees in containers which can be set out year-round. However January and February are the best times for Baytonians to set out shade trees. Some that may be planted between now and March are chinaberry, dogwood, hawthorn, Chinese holly, magnolia, mimosa, redbud. suggests that the watering and packing be done at the same time. emerges from the container or burlap.

After mixing the gravel, sand, and organic matter, the preparation should be watered down well even in wet weather. Pack the soil down firmly.

The next meeting will be at 7 p.m. Feb. 13 in the home of Mrs. Sheppard, 2304 Maryland. FUTURE FERTILIZATION After the first initial fertiliza tion, young trees should not be fed again for one year. At that lime tlie diameter of the trunk 12 to 15 inches above the ground determines the number of pounds to use. For example, a three inch diameter trunk at that point—or the caliber, as it is called in horticulture groups—means that three pounds of fertilizer should be used. February is an excellent time to perform this annual task, although a light fertilization may be in order in the fall. The process employed by most gardeners required the drilling of holes about IS inches deep around the plant with a torch, forming several perforated rings. Small amounts of fertilizer with a 13-1313 or 12-24-12 count should be used.
