(When can I move my daffodils or
jonquils ? , This is almost a perennial
question" after I the blooming season.
It is best to move them after the foli
age has turned yellow and begun to
die. While the foliage is green, the
plant is storing food materials in the!
bulb for next years bloom. After
the 'foliage has turned yellow, the
- bulbs may be dug, divided, and re
planted at once or dried and stored
in a cool dry place for fall planting,
Dahlias that have been allowed to
remain in the ground over winter
should be dug now and divided. They
may be replanted immediately or may
be kept and .planted, later. Even if
you wish only one plant, they should
! be divided and the extra divisions giv
en away. The "eyes" or sprouts of
ihe dahlia are formed on the crown
or base of the stem not on the roots
themselves. In .dividing them, care
must be taken to get at least one eye
or sprout with eaah root or division.
It is not necessary to have more than
one sprout and one root. It has been
for community, school, church, 4-H.
and Home Demonstration groups. He
also gave the group the principles of
conducting recreation. He met with
the 44-H Clube at IWinifall on March
27 and with Hertford Grammar -H
Clubs on March 28 and taught se veral
games which the members enjoyed
very much. .
The highlight of the program came
when Mr. Powell asked each person
present to give a group the informa
tion gained at the school and to learn
to play for fun., ' , ,

Club. Special music was rendered by
a group of girls from Bethel Com
munity accompanied by Mrs. Joe P.j
Ward, Music Appreciation Leader.
Mrs. Fred Mathews, president, pre.
sided duriner the business session at
my experience that it is best to wait wmcn tjme pians were m&fe for Nat
ional Home Demonstration Week, for
until May to plant dahlias. Earlier
planting will give you nice early
pooms but they wil not do as wel as
Spring Federation, the Annual Lunch-
jeon for County Commissioners, and a
in the fall when they ehoud be at their ,radi0 broadcast. It was announced
best that the District meeting will be held
I am continually being asked, "How on April 111 at Poplar 'Branch,
do you grow such big dahlias?" The -ssvvavwwavwwswvwm
first essential is to plant the large va
rieties. Cultoral practices will im
prove size to a certain extent but you
can't grow a big flower from a small
variety. ILarge dahlias are fine for
shows and for the garden but for
bouse decoration there are many love
ly small and medium sized varieties.
