TTIP rERQUIMANS'rFFTlX FEintO?. N. C.; FRIDAY. APRIL 25, 1952.
.Here is the information I promised
on varieties and planting of dahlias.
For the beginner I suggest the fol
lowing varieties which have done well
for me: ' Jane Cowl, large bronze;
Cherokee Brave, large red; Michigan
White, medium white; Jersey Beauty,
medium pink; Edgar Guest, large yel
low; King David, large purple; Mrs.
E. J., medium pink; Kirsten Flagstad,
large ' orange; World Event, large
pink. - . ' '
Of the miniature type I can recom
mend the following: Market Glory,
White Faun, Little Lemon Drop, An
drea's Orange, Ike, Fuchsia Gem and
Little Peaches. Of the pompon type,
the following are the best: Little
Edith, Snowclad, Betty Anne, Yellow
Gem, Sherry, Atom, Morning Mist,
Dahlias will grow well on any soil
that 'will produce good Irish pota
toes. The principal requirement are
that the soil be well drained, easily
worked, and contains a good amount
of organic matter so that it will hold
: About a week before planting, work
into the soil five pounds of a 510-5
or 6-8-6 fertilizer per 100 square feet
of - garden space to be used. ' The

feet apart each direction or in rows
4 feet part and hills 2 to S feet
apart in the row. Themiiuatures and
pompons should be Vh feet apart each
way, or in rows 3 feet apart with
hills 2 feet apart.
Dig holes six inches deep and large
enough to accommodate the root to be
planted. It is advisable to, drive a
5 foot stake at each hill before .plant
ing. Small roots are as good as large
roots, and probably better. You will
find an eye or sprout at the stem
end of the root Ini planting, place
the root, flat in the bottom of the
hole with the sprout or eye facing up
and about 3 inches frorn the stake.
In sandy soils the hole may be filled
to the top, but in, clay Soils it may
be best to fill in 2 to 8 inches over the
root until the sprout has come up.
Then the rest of the soil may be filled
Dahlias should be cultivated once
a week unless a mulch is used. Four
to six inches of straw mulch will take
the place of cultivation. With the
large flowered varieties, as soon as
the stem has developed 3 sets of
Jeaves the top should be pinched out
to cause the plant to branch out. As
soon as the first buds develop apply a
handful of garden fertilizer around
each plant and again about September
1. Keep the plants tied to the stakes
, to prevent damage by storms. ,
