Chrysanthemum Rust — ♦ ? ? One of the worst diseases that the chry santhemum plant is subject to in our climate is the ''rust disease.''

The method of using the solution is by spraying. To make the solnt'.on, use one ounce to two to three gallons of water. Spray the plants once every second week. This solution is a preventive of both rust and mildew. Once the disease makes its ap pearance the plants affected should be destroyed by burning. The solution should be prepared 24 hours before using.

Moisture in the Soil [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Mail — 24 October 1926

Moisture in the Soil ? — -♦ — To the majority of people at firs' siglit it would seem as if breaking up the surface soil would facilitate and accelerate the escape of moisture from the soil beneath. Such, how ever, is not tne case. wnen me out face is broken up with the hoe * layer of loose soil is then placed over the more consolidated soil beneath. In the latter the moisture is rising freelv, but when it comes in contact with* the loose layer, the particles of soil in it are no longer so closely bound together that the moisture can pass readily to them. Consequently a chock to evapora tion from the surface takes place, and the moisture is kept in tlie soil for a longer period- The loosening of the surface soil indeed produces a kind of soil blanket, which checks the rapid absorption of heat from the air and the rapid evaporation of mois ture from the soil at the same time. The roots of the crops are therefore kept in a cool, moist, and highly active condition during the hottest se...

Michaelmas Daisies [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Mail — 24 October 1926

Michaelmas Daisies ♦ ? ? Michaelmas daisies (or perennial asters) may be grown in any good gar den so;'l if the beds are well dug. It is advisable to add some well-rotted manure. For the best results the plants should be thinned out in the early spring. In crease is by division- Choose growths on the outside of the clumps for replanting, as these will give far better results, and grow into far better plants than those taken from the centre. If you must re plant in the same positions, the ground must be thoroughly redug and manured before replanting. Do not plant too large pieces. It is advisable to stake the plants, and it should be done before the plants get too tall. Several stakes are better than one. Place two, three, or four stakes to each clump, accord.ng to size. Have the stakes lower than the plant will be when in flower. If the staking is carefully done and the growths regulated as re quired, very little of the stakes will be visible when the plants are in bloom. Should som...
