How to Plant and Care

Mr. J. K. Ivey, of Charlotte, who

authorities and largest growers of
flowers in Western North Carolina.
Mr. Ivey caters' t eciully to the dah
lia. He sent to this paper an ar
ticle explaining some of thjr; vital
points as to how the dahlia can best
be grown in this count) .
"I am very anxious to build up the
reputation of Haywood county for
dahlias and would like to see every
home have some of these beautiful
flowers, which do so well there." Mr.
Ivy said. He continued, "There have
been far less exhibitors at the shows
there than I would like to see, and I
hope that , the Woman's Club will be
able to develop still further interest
ia this very attractive flower."
Mr. Ivey has made a liberal offer
to the residents of this county, W'ith
ul any obligation on their part other
Ikan promising to care for the flow
ers, he will give a $10 bulb of the
Kathleen Norris variety to the per
sons ending in their name to him

While the annual Dahlia Shows at May Fa,.m,M.( Anna May Lonff( Mar
Waynesville have been very success
ful I with others have been disap
pointed that only a comparatively
few have made any entries. I would
be glad to see fifty or more prepare
to exhibit one or more baskets or
vases for the show next fall. I have
asked the President of the Woman's
Club, who is Sponsor of this Dahlia
Show, if. they would not arrange their
premium list so as to induce the grow
er of only a few Dahlias to show
their civic spirit by joining in helping
to make the VX.V1 Dahlia Show the!
largest and best we have ever had.
The Woman's Club has als'o promised
to print their premium list" next
upring before planting time so that
you will know just what to work for.
The Dahlia seems to be at its best
in the fine climate of Haywood coun
ty and if evry home grew this-' beau
tiful flower, it would make Haywood
county know ; as the Dahlia county,
and would attract tourists who al
ready know the reputation the coun
ty has as the "Home of the Dahlia."
Many say it is no use to enter the
show as Shelton, Cleveland and Ivey
will get all the prizes. Others can
grow them as well as we, if they
only will get good varieties and give
them fair attention.
To get the soil in best condition, I
would advise getting your proposed
l)ahlia Garden in good condition by
broadcasting the plot with stable ma
nure and then turning under the
g-round deep and leaving it rough for
the winter's ice, snow and winds to
work on the soil.
Then, next spring dig holes, two
feet deep, put in some manure in the
bottom, fill up with good top soil and
plant the tubers about six inches deep
in this prepared spot. Allow only one
main stalk and keep this one disbud
ded as to the ends of each branch and
you should have no trouble in having
fine flowers provided you have good
To show my practical interest in
the show, I will give free to the, first
twenty-five residents of Haywood
county, writing meone bulb of Kath
leen Norris, which I consider about
the finest Dahlia grown a gor
geous, immense glowing pink. It holds
up its head and lasts well after be
ing cut. This variety sold last year
for $10.00 each and thousands were
sold at that price. It is such a healthy
vigorous grower that it has multi
plied and is much cheaper this year.
The only conditions to this offer
1. That you are a resident of Hay
2, That you promise to make an
exhibit at the Dahlia Show next fall.
3. That only one member of a fam
ily .can get one of these Kathleen Nor
ris bulbs. ,
4. that the first twenty-five let
ters I get making these promises wi!
get one of these bulbs free.
If you have doubts as to my com
ing up to my promise, consult either
one of the banks at Waynesville.
I have already engaged these bulbs
aiid if by any unforeseen chance they
foil me, I will send another variety
that will rank with it, but I am sure
that I can supply twenty-five of these
In addition, I will offer as a prize
at the Dahlia Show a Dahlia tuber
worth $5.00, one of the new varieties;!
this to be given to the best bloom
rrown from one of the bulbs furnish
ed in this offer.
