Last week wa talked more about
the joy of growing camellias rather
than the actual fact of planting and
earing tor them. So today we are
going to tell you what one of the
south' expert growers of camellias
"Do not put a five dollar 'camellia
in a ten cent hole." . ,
He went on to explain that the
hole ihould be twice as wide and
twice as deep as the ball of dirt that
Is bur lapped around the plant. If
: the place does not have good natural
drainage, dig a trench that will
reach the bottom of the hole and on
out far enough to carry and' water
that may tend to stand around the
plant after a rain. Place two or three
inches of rough gravel or clinkers
in the bottom of the hole and trench
. and cover with good dirt up to
where the ball will set.
Soil used in this hole should be
mixture in equal parts of woods
dirt (well rotted leaf mold), good
garden soil, and sand. Set the plant
so. that it will be about two inches
higher than it had grown in the
nursery from which it came. Pack
soil firmly around it and water
well. Mulch with a three inch thick
ness of peat, rotted leafmold, rotted
i sawdust, corncobs, shavings, or what
have you. Keep this mulch on sum
mer and winter. " - '
There is a ' great difference of
opinion ' about feeding camellias.
This man is a" three-time feeder.
He feeds his 'plants in November,
February, and March, using special
camellia fertilizer at rates suggest
ed on the bag, All are agreed that
azaleas should never be fed until
just after blooming. When fed be
fore blooming it forces the blooms
and they often rush out only to be
killed by a heavy frost. In the case
of azaleas it is better to let nature
have her way with the blooming.
There is another school of thought
that neither camellias nor azaleas
need feeding at all, except for the
mulch which provides food and
acidity. Seme claim that by feeding
only humus makes more perfect
leaves and blooms. All are agreed
that both camellias and azaleas do
best when moisture is maintained
through hot summer months. Every
third day the plants should be
showered with water and the
ground soaked to at least a depth
of three inches. The majority of top
growers say semi-shade is best, yet,
I have seen some wonderful plants
in full sun. However they are treat
ed, nothing can surpass the beauty
of camellias and azaleas.

MEAT FOR FREEZING
"'' The Importance of scrupulously
clean and prompt handling of meat
for freezing is stressed by William
ulzbacher, Bureau of Animal In
dustry, U. S. Department of Agri
culture to those who are putting
meat in home freezers or freezer
lockers. In his tests with samples
of pork in frozen storage for 12
weeks, Mr. Sulbacher found that
many bacteria that cause deteriora-
tion or spoilage of meat survive or
i even increase in faozen storage. This
desproves the old but widespread
belief that freezing kills bacteria.
1 When In Kenansville
Stop At The
Mr. Subacher found that some bac
teria do not survive freezing', but
that others survive in a dormant
stage and then may increase after
the meat thaws and warms up.
Still others are not affected by
freezing, even at zero F. and may
cantribute to such deterioration as
rancidity of pork fat during freezer
The only way to be sure of a low
bacterial count on meat that comes
out of freezer storage is to have the
bacterial load low on the fresh meat
to be frozen says Mr. Sulzbacher.
I This calls for careful sanitation -'clean
cold fresh meat, clean hands,
tools and wrappings and a clean
I surface for cutting and preparing
.the meat. Also helpful is keeping
I the meat cold before and after freez
ing because bacteria develop rapid
ly on warm meat.
