These two factors, more than any others determine whether your efforts arc for posterity or for a few trouble-filled months or years." So states John Threlkcld. author of TIIE CAMELLIA BOOK, published by D. Van Nostrand. According to Threlkcld, in |THE CAMELLIA BOOK, "The planting procecdurc of camel lias is simpler than is general ly supposed. If your garden soil is naturally good and similar to forest soil, just dig an adequate {hole and plant your plant, making sure it is placed at the proper level. Unfortunately, few. of us have such an ideal I soil so we have to improve it by adding about half humus such as peat, leaf mold or compost. "To plant properly, dig the hole only as deep as the root ball, thus permitting placement on solid ground. Then obtain I depth and width by digging around the center, as deep and as wide as space and energy permit, leaving a pedestal of solid earth as a foundation. A proper planting hole looks exactly like a doughnut mold. If your soil is too sandy to form a pedestal, a foundation may be built with bricks or rocks and soil. Settle the plant on I this foundation, then fill around it with the prepared mixture of soil, tamping it solidly to eliminate air pockets. . . . "Consider that drainage is poor if you see water standing on top of the ground for more than a fow minutes. If special drainage provision is necessary, dig a deep but narrow hole through the hardpan alongside [the planting pedestal and backfill with course gravel. Or lay drainage tile away from the low jside of the hole to carry off excess water. Drainage is not improved by backfilling the bottom of the planting hole with [gravel, unless the hole goes all the way through the hardpan. If the hardpan is too thick to dig through the allematives are to lay drainage tile or plant in raised beds or in containers." California California has always bad important nurseries supplying trees and shrubs to many areas of the United States as ell as locally, according to the American Association of Nurserymen. Reason: shrubs and trees grow faster in this state than Ijin colder and cloudier areas. POWDERPUfFS Rain should show you the spots where drainage is bad in your lawn. You can either dig down and put drainage tile leading out of your yard, or dig "dry wells". These are simple to do and can be effective. Just dig down several feet .and fill the hole with broken I brick, rocks, shards or pf like and fill the hole up again. So double there's no room for another petal, so soft and fluffy they're named Powderpuffi, are the double blooms on the«a hollyhocks. They grow only 4 to 5 feet high; are bushy. ThB hollyhocks in Grandmother's garden were fall plants which had to be staked to prevent the wind from blowing them over and breaking the stems. Most of them had single flowers widely spaced alone the top portion of the stem- Even so, hollyhocks were an extremely popular garden floiver. Then, somehow, hollyhocks went out ot style, as flowers do.'Now, however, with all the improvements that have beeu made In these plant.s, they're having a revival of popularity. Just see, in the picture above, what the new hollyhocks have to offer your garden. These are not tall gawky plants. They grow at most four to five feet high and are stocky or bushy in form. Their fully double, many petaled blooms measure i inches across and are so fluffy, so dainty, that the strain has been named Powderpuffs. ' . ' The flowers cover the fop two feet of each stem and there Isn't space enough- between them for leaves to grow, they're that solidly packed. Their colors are enough to make a hollyhock" lover drool for, although offered only in mixture, the seeds are blended from separate colors: rose, pint, lavender, scarlet, yellow and white. Think of these beauties for a splash o£ color against a- fence, a- background for lower growing annuals, or to substitute for a shrulk »gainst a new bouse. They'll do any of these jobs and many more. Dahlia grower faces problems The dahlia grower works hard at his hobb}', for he has many handicaps in the form of weath er, insect pests and diseases. Then,-too, there are so many types and colors to choose from that selection Is not easy. Cultivation i.<; tedious and fus sy, too. Clumps must be separ ated in spring so that each eye on the crown or stalk has one or two tuberous roots firmly attached. The division is planted about May IS in a hole 6 inches deep. The root is laid flat or with the end pointed slightly down and covered with 1 or 2 in ches of soil. As the shoot grows from the eye the hole is filled in.
