Fruitvale S674W Fertilizer for Sale Preparation of Soil, Rolling Sowing and Fertilization Are-Important. By GERARD A. BECKERS. Manager Alpine Garden Supply Co, To rid the aoll of weeds, hoe iirfnf clear of weeds and roots Spade carefully. Commencing at one end with a trench the depth of the spade. In spading, see that soil la turned over bo that the aur face la placed at the bottom of the trench. This will tend to kill erowinsr weeds. Break surface clods, rake, grade and level soil carefully. ' It is advisable, providing there is sufficient time, to water prepared soil daily for about two or three weeks before planting. This gives the weed, seed a chance to germinate and 'grow and these weeds can be hoed out before planting grass seed, provided hoeing is done in dry weather. Killing this first crop of weeds will help the grass, as It will not have to struggle for existence. This Is especially helpful where blue grass Is to be planted.

Before sowing seed, see that soil is rolled carefully with a water-weight lawn roller If the 60il is not firmly packed, the grass will grow In spots and the mower will ruin the new lawn Rolling will lso prevent the soil from settling unevenly. 1 Rake the soil lightly and sow seed evenly. Do not attempt to sow when the wind is blowing. Use best quality of seed. Kentucky blue grass makes the most satisfactory lawn, though it should not be planted before March or after September. This seed should be sown 1 pound to each 150 square reet. Pacific rye grass is a good quick growing grass, and can be planted almost any month in the year. This grass requires 1 pound of seed to each 100 square feet. Golden Gate park mixture is the most used of all. It contains hardy grasses and the lawns grown from it -will stand a great deal of walking over without serious injury. The mixture is composed of blue grass 40 per cent, rye grass 40 per cent, red top and fescue 15 per cent, clover 5 per cent. The advantage of white clover is that it spreads rapidly, Is hardy and looks well when the other grasses are dormant. Golden Gate mixture should be sown 1 pound to each 100 square feet, clover 1 pound to each 200 square feet. FERTILIZATION. After sowing seed apply a top dressing of pulverized sheep manure, 100 pounds to each 300 square feet. AddIv the dressintr on top of the seed after sowing. The dressing will cover the seed. In watering, the dressing will enrich the soil as well as act as a mulch MTLCHI.VG. .In dry warm weather a mulch of rice hulls, sawdust or prepared humus should be applied to the newly planted lawn. GERMINATION. Blue grass seed germinates In from IS to 24 days, rye and clover in from eight to 14 days. WATERING. Never allow the new lawn to become dry. This is essential in order to keep the new grass from dying out. Water each evening and, in warm weather, twice daily is necessary. After the grass is about an inch high It will not be necessary to water so frequently. Be careful to use a fine spray in watering to avoid washing out the seed or the young grass. MAKES U SMS T EXPERT PLAN Preparation of the Soil Held Three-Quarters of Battle for Good Flowers. ROCK GARDENS ENHANCED BY SURROUNDINGS By A. M. WOODMAN, Landscape Engineer. Rock Gardens are becoming very popular in the bay district, especially when natural rock forms part of the ite. Rocks which contain streaks of colored ore are especially attractive, and are very much at home In the so-called nat-uralisitic garden. Rocks with good contour lines and flat rocks can be utilized for the making of pools. Rocks, depending upon their stratification, can also be used for the making or stone walls, steps, paths, courts. But the beauty of rock earden can be easily destroyed if inappro priate plants are planted. The usual run of garden fuowers are out of keeping with the true rock garden, except possibly columbines. delphinums, foxglove. There are a host of native neren- nlals and bulbous plants which are fine to use. Native shrubs like the toyon, California cherry.. Cascara shrub, live oak, bay laurel, man-zanita. madrone anf others belong naturally to the rock garden. So do many vines which climb naturally over rocks; these must not be too rampant in growth so as to obscure the coloring of the rocks. .Exposed rocks which are covered with mosses and lichens fit in well near pools and in woodland stretches. There are a host of rock and alpine plants, too. in cluding many kinds of dianthus or rock pinks, dwarf campanulas. saxifrages, sedums, thymes, creeping veronica, aubrietia, perennial candytuft, alyssum. arabis and taller kinds which make a splendid effect when planted against the rocks. LABOR spelled with capital let ters is three-quarters of the prep aration of the soil for garden or lawn planting. Scratching the surface with hoe or rake or turning over once to. a shallow depth with a spade does not define cultivation. This is the definition of soil preparation by A. B. McDermott, head gardener for the Montgomery Ward and Co.'s plant at East Fourteenth street and Twenty-ninth nvenue. Preparation should have started in the early winter when the first spading might have been .done. Spade deep and let it lay for ten days or two weeks to mellow in th" air and sun. Give It a sprinkling of surphur and a good coating of shell lime. Let the rain dissolve and mix with the soil. Sulphur is a necessary plant food and the lime sweetens and loosens the ground and assists drainage. It also gives other forms of plant life food to be more readily taken up into plant life. , Now spade again 19 a fair depth of fiiSe or six inches. Another week of exposure and with a hoe Veak up the lumps and smooth with a rake, removing ail hard pan lumps and rocks. For a lawn leave the ground on a gradual grade depending on the position of the house and street. USE FERTILIZERS. If you are planting garden vege tables or flowers you can now use some of the different kinds of fer tilizers. There are several'on the market but It is well to study care fully the kind needed for the va riety of plant that you are expecting to produce. For lawn we have greatest success in using peat. It covers the seed and also provides that which retains the moisture and prevents cracks In the soli. Irrigation for flowers, shrubs or vegetables in this bay region need not be heavy. We have so much dew and fog that such plants will get a large percentage of their water needs from these sources. Lawns, however, need more water In dry months than most folks give them. S-prinkling a lawn with a hose a few minutes every day does not answer. The ground should be thoroughly soaked at least two or three times a week. Many people worry ovStv the kind of soil they have and think to improve It by hauling In richer loam or sand. Such a plan la expensive and hardly satisfactory. A better plan ig to LABOR. WHAT TO PLANT. n the early spring there is always the question of what to plant so as to give the garden color for the summer and fall, arid also to have cut flowers for the house. To do this one should select flowers most suited for the location. There are flowers that will grow very well In shaded places, a number of these are: the Dwarf Lobelia, Nigellas, Ageratum and Forget-me-nots. For partial shade, Pansies. Dwarf Phlox, Sweet Alyssum and Centaurea of different varieties are a few that could be planted. The Petunias. Eschscholt-zia, Poppies, Verbenas and Chinese Pinks like the full sunlight. All the above-mentioned flowers grow from six inches to one foot high and are recommended for borders, while some of them are good for bedding and ground cover effects. Between the borders and the background of shrubs. Snapdrag ons. Stocks, Asters. Zinnias. Salvia. Clarkia, Margarets. Marigolds and uaiiardias are good for color and also for cut flowers, that one may enjoy the effects of their garden by having them in the house. Scattered here and there among tne shrubs. Delphinium, Larkspur, Campanula. Foxglove. Gladiolus and Japanese IJlium hiake the garden have the finishing touch by giving color with, the evergreen shrubs. Most of these flowers .can1 be had by planting the seed when danger of frost is over or they can be pur chased, in small plants from your nurseryman In their seasons By careful selection you can have some varieties In blossom at all times of the summer and fall. To get spring oplor. it is advisable to se lect hardy plants in the fall early eough that tney will-get established for the dormant period of winter. Ornamental grasses should not be overlooked. They add a note to the flower garden and to bouquets, that Is distinctive and can be secured by no other plants. They are easily grown. The amateur would do well to make up lists rrom the most detailed seed catalogue, as to color, time of bloom and culture of annual plants. Olive Growers Convene in Rome ROME.
