Miss Carol Masden Zinnias Most Liked Flower By SHEILA k ALLAN SWENSON Most popular flower and vegetable in a poll of gardeners across the country have been named First choice, according to sales of seeds, is Giant Cactus Flowered Zinnia among flowers and giant red variety of tomato. Seedsmen from all major companies met this past season at Penn State University. They reported on the popularity of flower and vegetable varieties among their millions of customers. Marigolds had held the lead among flowers for years. But new developments are changing trends. Giant Cactus Flowered Zinnias grow with ease throughout the country. Seeds are easy to handle and grow rapidly when planted directly in the soil. Large Flowers These magnificent large flowers come in a range of colors from white to yellow, orange, pink, red and purple. In addition to showy displays in the garden; zinnias last long as cut flowers in the home. Blooms measure up to five inches across. Tomatoes have been America's favorite vegetable. Gardeners have enjoyed them in many sizes, from giant red to small bite size cherry types. Beeksteak, Big Boy, Whopper, Early Giant and Delicious are newer varieties, a tribute to p\ant breeders who developed better tomatoes. Best Results For best results with these new varieties, select a sunny location with good drainage and; fertile soil. Every home has one spot that can accommodate a few plants. Use a mulch of straw, grass clippings, or chopped leaves to retain moisture and hold down weeds. Staking keeps vines neat, fruit clean and makes picking easier. You can also use hoops of fence wire so that tomatoes will climb upward to save space and get greater exposure to sun, less exposure to disease organisms on the ground. As we prepared our latest book, "Practical Book of Organic Gardening," we interviewed thousands of gardeners. We would like to know more about other gardening efforts around the country and success you've had with flowers and vegetables. What are your favorite flowers and vegetables? What have been the most successful cultivation methods? Drop us a note about your gardening and as space permits we'll add your thoughts into our future columns and books. We're at Windrows Farm, Basking Ridge, N. J. 07920. Bateman Plans Spring Festival Janet Stewart, left, will be in charge of the Make-up Booth and the Spook House at the Bateman Parent-Teacher Assn.
